One of the best movies Showtime ever put out
8 January 2008 | by JimmyDodSee all my reviews

This was an outstanding movie - the first one I've ever watched that I literally couldn't take my eyes off the screen. It is well written, the story lines are all explained and brought together, and the cast redefined the word "terrific".

With respect to all of the actors, Clancy Brown stole the show. Playing a bitter ex-field agent, relegated to a training role, Brown's portrayal was flawless, and I hope to see him a whole lot more in the future.

I've never given a 10 out of 10 for a movie before, but I think this one deserves it. Showtime would do well to make this a series or release a sequel.
