Our Score
In this preposterous crime thriller, Russell Crowe plays an FBI agent who, after a sting operation goes wrong in the most unbelievable manner, tries to bring a yakuza boss (Etsushi Toyokawa) from New York to Los Angeles on a commercial flight. The boss gets loose and forces the plane down on a small field in the mountains. Somehow the agent, the crime boss and a stewardess (Helen Slater at her most annoying) end up pushing a broken car around the desert.


After a sting operation goes badly wrong, FBI agent Zack Grant sets out to avenge the death of his partner. However, the gangster father of a crook killed in the same raid blames Grant for his loss and gets payback of his own by kidnapping his son. To rescue the boy, the agent is forced to enter into a deadly alliance with a Japanese Yakuza boss. Action adventure, starring Russell Crowe, Helen Slater, Etsushi Toyokawa, Michael Lerner and Kelly Hu.
