    any thriller with connery is worth watching catherine zeta jones proves to be excellent in this.the script is purely by the numbers but the two leads and set pieces do entertain.the extra features are average.but picture and sound are top stuff.

    I wasnt so sure about this film, but I was glad to get the chance to see it on DVD when I nicked it off a mate. Yep.

    Content:- The obvious high point here is Sean Connery, big Tam. He is pretty damn good in this really, very watchable as per usual and has his usual on screen presence thing. Catherine Zeta Jones is also pretty damn good too, very errrr watchable if you get my meaning. Ahem. I was actually quite surprised by this film. I thought it would be a bit more mindless that it was, but it was quite realistic (ish) and had some very exciting bits. I liked it all.

    Video:- Damn nice anamorphic transfer with all the bells and whistles. All the various scenic bits looked really good, especially that big skyscraper thing. Aye. Can`t complain.

    Audio:- Crisp and clear is all I can really say as I still havent got my damn Digitheatre (damn you foot and mouth disease!!!!) but it is probably a pretty good soundtrack.

    Features:- Not that much to show, but not totally bad I suppose. Yep.

    Overall:- This was a lot better than I thought it would be. I watched it twice when I borrowed it and it was just as good the second time around. Yep.
