Better than you think it's gonna be.

Not expecting very much from this film and it did not disappoint. However, it did do me one better and was more entertaining than I thought possible, but I should have known that when you put Kurt Russell and James Spader in the same scenes that at the very least it will capture the viewer's attention. Fun and frilly.

I have read the people who reviewed this movie and I can't believe it. This movie has some shoot them up stuff. That is about the only bad thing about the movie. The main character does have a brief moment where the woman tries to give herself to the man but nothing is shown. Just her shoulders are exposed for a very brief moment.

I loved it.

This title has:

Too much violence
