Chris Rock plays a CIA agent who is undercover and about to retrieve a nuclear bomb that fits neatly into a suitcase. But before he gets close, he is killed by rival buyers of the bomb. His partner, Anthony Hopkins, finds Chris Rock`s twin brother, who is a poor streetwise husler and black marketer. He recruits the reluctant brother to retrieve the bomb as the seller will only deal with Chris Rock......
Sounds all too familiar and it has been done many times before. Sir Anthony Hopkins performs well but his choice of role really limits him. All that said the movie is quite watchable and does have some decent action and espionage involved.
The video and sound are surprisingly very well done. The picture is sharp and clean all through. The colours are rich and glossy. If only they had put that much effort into the movie! The sound is also loud and clear. There is also a DTS track to give your system the complete workout.
There is only one extra that looks inside the movie and is quite lousy. There was nothing else, not even a trailer or commentary track. They obviously knew the dvd wouldnt do well.
Joel Schumacher has made some real stinkers and though this film doesnt stink, it aint far off. No originality whatsoever, poor humour and the only thing that makes this movie watchable is the decentish action. Only worth watching if nothing elses on really.
