  1. Neither (Gooding nor Ulrich) has the distincitve spark of an action hero, and their Butch and Sundance repartee falls so consistently flat that you end up feeling a little embarrassed for them.

    A ho-hummer of a "Speed" knockoff that will leave most audiences cold.

    Most of the action revolves around Ulrich's character, and the center cannot hold our interest.

    There are a lot of logical gaps in this movie.
  5. The stunt work is pretty good, the brain work close to nonexistent.

    Instantly disposable ...Gooding appears tobe losing the momentum of his Jerry Maguire Oscar win two years ago.
  7. A mechanically efficient chase-by-numbers movie.
  8. 40
    None of this is especially funny, nor is it particularly exhilarating; at best it's throwaway entertainment.
  9. 40
    A movie that wants to be "Speed" so badly that it runs roughshod over the essentials, including a decent script.

    Isn't a bad action movie -- it's just an utterly forgettable one.

    These bantering would-be heroes mostly live at the tops of their voices.
