Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

This lamely directed and badly written drama about international terrorism is a rare dud from Sean Connery. He plays Nils Tahlvik, a security chief tackling a ransom demand for a kidnapped British ambassador while also dealing with a hijacked plane. Confusion reigns for most of the time, and that's just among the cast - so the audience will have virtually no chance of following the plot.
