| Not worth the time to watch.
This is a really bad movie, composed of one chase scene after another. The characters are so one dimensional that you don't care what happens to them. And apparently they don't either. At one point, a character disappears in the middle of a tussle & chase scene. None of h-is/-er fellow characters even question, let alone investigate the disappearance. And sometime later, they happen to run into one another on the street -- apparently just so this loose end would be taken care of.

Altogether a real disappointment, especially since I've always liked Judge Reinhold, and have also enjoyed Michael Rooker. I just don't know why they wasted their time, as well as my own.
