Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

George Clooney and Nicole Kidman attempt to save Manhattan from nuclear destruction in this pacey thriller from director Mimi Leder (Deep Impact). When a Russian train is blown up to disguise the theft of a nuclear warhead, the stage is set for a nail-biting countdown to disarm the device. Kidman isn't entirely convincing as a government scientist, but Clooney's confident lead performance as a Special Forces officer helped his transition from small-screen idol to international movie star. The first film to be released by DreamWorks SKG - the studio founded by Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen - this failed to ignite at the box office. But action fans will doubtless enjoy the irresistible combination of explosions, car crashes and shots of the ticking bomb.
