The stunt work is pretty good, the brain work close to nonexistent.

Quite an average low budget action film. Not the greatest plot in the world.

Fine action with Skeet Ulrich and Cuba Gooding Jr. go on the lam with a deadly biological weapon to keep it out of the hands of a demented arms dealer. Stitched… More
