Great first hour, then goes wrong
Reviewed by Simon on 2001-05-27

A fine film. Well, the first hour of the film is great - really fresh & intelligent, with a nice tongue in cheek style. Then at about the hour mark, the plot suddenly turns really contrived - it's as though the writer ran out of ideas and watched Die Hard too many times. The action scenes, acting and direction throughout are top notch though. Especially the action scenes - mostly hand to hand stuff, and not for the purists (lots of edits, some wires etc) but very nicely filmed.
