John Frankenheimer directed this $20 million international action thriller from a screenplay by Richard Weisz (pseudonym for David Mamet) and J.D. Zeik. In Paris, Irish organizer Deidre (Natascha McElhone) assembles a team to grab a mysterious briefcase from criminals. They are never told who hired them or the true identity of their targets. The hired specialists: Former CIA officer Sam (Robert De Niro), former Euro intelligence agent Vincent (Jean Reno), German electronics expert Gregor (Stellan Skarsgard), driver Larry (Skip Sudduth), and British weapons wrangler Spence (Sean Bean). After a Seine shootout, the action moves to the South of France, with a recon mission in Cannes, and a chase that brings everyone to Nice. Inevitable betrayals ensue, along with more pursuits. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Talk about going old school. Bobby De Niro bought it to life and the rest of the cast definitely held their own in this action flick free of T-N-A, drama or any useful life lessons. This movie was great, if you like action movies, and I've seen it a few times just for the car chase alone. There are very few movies that I ve seen that really catch my interest like this one has. Why? I have no idea other than it was fast, action packed and well assembled. If I had to pick at something, I'd say that the characters had no background to speak of. There was almost no character development. But then considering the nature of the movie, I'm sure that it was by design; or perhaps it was written this way because the writer was too lazy. Who cares? Rent it; it s very entertaining.
