Our Score
With a script that's hazy on explanation, this thriller survives thanks to the pell-mell action that papers over the weak links in the convoluted plot. Watching Keanu Reeves play a scientist seeking to make cheap power out of water is a little hard to take. But after he and fellow researcher Rachel Weisz go on the run from mysterious saboteurs after cracking the formula, The Fugitive director Andrew Davis's muddled suspense tale finally takes flight. Don't think, just panic, as Reeves cashes in on his Speed hero persona in a running, jumping slice of breathless escapism.


Two scientists devise a revolutionary process to produce energy from water - but instead of receiving professional acclaim, their work is subject to hi-tech sabotage. The pair are then framed for the murder of their mentor and forced to go on the run to clear their names. Action thriller, starring Keanu Reeves, Rachel Weisz, Morgan Freeman, Fred Ward and Brian Cox.
