Critics Reviews

Washington Post
To enjoy it, however, you have to do the mental equivalent of squinting your eyes, so the credibility is only fuzzily ridiculous.

TV Guide
Though consistently handsome, the film never quite achieves the shallow but hugely seductive intensity of its MTV-style opening credits sequence.

Decent action thriller
Can be too much sometime but in the end it's a movie worth watching An attempt to stop a hit on a very important person and catch the jackal, and assassin no one has ever know or seen, and live to tell about.
