Shun this. It’s so dumb that you’ll catch the only plot twist before the plot gets started, so witless that “funny” means putting suspense music behind non-suspense action and so thrill-free that the John Woo tribute shootout has all the kinetic energy of a department store mannequin.


And that’s not the worst of it.

As a gun-happy secret agent chasing terrorists in Paris, with Jonathan Rhys Meyers tagging along, John Travolta kills the film single-handedly with a performance lifted directly from old, bad blaxploitation movies. His embarrassment in the extras is the high point of the disc.

If you really need buddy-spy movies, rent seasons one and two of I Spy or The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

EXTRAS Commentary, making-of doc, spy techniques doc, spy museum doc. Widescreen. English, French audio. English subtitles.
