Everything but the kitchen sink
17 August 2001 | by MemletsSee all my reviews

If it's variety you're after in an action flick, this is the movie for you.

We've got the CIA; avalanches; diabetic Dads; gullible train conductors; Christmas parades; ludicrous doomsday devices.

Exploding helicopters, exploding trucks, exploding airplanes, exploding cars, and exploding bicycles. (Okay, not bicycles, but only because the producer had already filled the movie's quota of exploding transportation.)

White mountain goats; beautifully appointed vacation houses with working phones out in the middle of nowhere; internet rumors.

And Bongo the Bear.

We also have CIA agent Treat Williams merrily wisecracking all through the film, no matter how many people are slaughtered right in front of him. The CIA obviously gives some of their agents happy pills before every assignment.
