...actually it's very bad. The acting is bad, the screenplay is bad, and the directing is bad...actually I think the director was sleeping in his chair while "directing" the actors. The lines in this movie are predictable and cheap and overused (in other movies before).
There are even some hilarious scenes in the movie, for example when Beau jumps blind trough the windows when the bomb explodes, falling RIGHT into a pile of cardboxes laying in the MIDDLE of the street, or when Beau as a postal inspector can walk into the FBI building's operations room just like that. It's also funny to watch FBI files protected by passwords that are not encrypted, you can actually see the password that you type instead of ***** [stars,blind characters] ... Jeeeez!
The FBI operation that they pulled off...well that wasn't an FBI operation, it wasn't even professional. Federal agents running around, without any cover... Our "hero" (who has about 8 years of experience as an FBI field agent) shoots a guy, (who then falls to the ground with his gun in his hands) then walks up to him and starts asking stupid questions WITHOUT securing his weapon! All this in a hostile environment...bahhh!!!
I don't know who to blame for stupid scenes like that in this movie (the director or screenwriter), but I think whoever is responsible for them, should quit his job. Actually the guy who hired him should do the same :)
Enough said, this movie is not worth your precious time, believe me!
