Looking back, I suppose I was never really bored during this film, but never really impressed by anything either. There were actually a couple of twists and turns that I didn't foresee, but all of the action in this film was based on so many preposterous ideas, that it was hard to care about the story at all. And while the two leads were used effectively in this film, Ving Rhames and Will Patton were side-players in roles that could've easily been juiced up to the levels of each talented actor. The film did lack a certain amount of style, but offered a good international feel, charming leads and an easy-to-follow, despite being filled with holes, storyline. All in all, a so-so kind of a movie.
PS: Someone please confirm to me that I did not see a razor-thin mustache gracing Catherine Zeta-Jones' lovely upper lip throughout this movie...the horror, the horror.... :)
