Director: Clark Johnson
Actors: Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Basinger, Eva Longoria, Martin Donovan, Ritchie Coster, Blair Brown, David Rasche, Kristin Lehman, Raynor Scheine, Chuck Shamata, Paul Calderon, Clark Johnson and Raoul Bhaneja
Year: 2006
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama and Thriller
Conclusion: 2/5
There is a novel of the same name written by Gerald Petievich which was published in 2003. This film was made and released three years after. Great cast list with the likes of Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland. I have to say it isn’t the best film that Michael Douglas has done. Director Barry Levinson was originally attached to direct the film which in the end went to Clark Johnson. There is no suspense at all. It is rather a dull film where people just run round for 2 hours which can be somewhat tiresome.
