This movie fits in with all the worst action movies of the 80s; making this even worse considering it came out in 2000. Seriously, there's a part where Tom Cruise throws sunglasses directly at the camera and then they explode into the opening title sequence... which also explodes multiple times. And what was up with Tom's slow motion hair?

The problem with that is just because something is different, that doesn't automatically make it good. Just because there is a clear message, that doesn't automatically make it good. This movie is both different and has a message but it isn't a good movie. It has its moments but it really is pretty boring…
