Review

A bunch of over-the-hill performers is assembled in this initially good-looking and ostensibly interesting, but ultimately fairly ridiculous action-thriller yarn about a Secret Service agent (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and a journalist's (Angie Harmon) endeavours to uncover the truth about the assassination of the President. Director Andy Cheng generates some initial tension by utilizing well-known genre techniques before abruptly running out of ideas on how to conceal the inadequacy of his script. And so we're left watching James Woods, Burt Reynolds and Anne Archer playing cardboard figures of people they once played with such conviction, while Gooding and Harmon run around trying to look serious.
