Something about this film says "TV movie", although I'm not sure exactly what aspect of it. What starts as a legal thriller with a sassy female lawyer turns into a chase movie that strains credibility, with the almost superhuman composure/ingenuity of the lead character and the improbable reach and resources of the bad guy. In a Bond film you have exactly the same issues, but those films don't try to pretend he's just a normal person caught up in extraordinary events.
All of the chase drama is fitted in around an ongoing trial and the rekindling of a romance with an ex-boyfriend (a cop who also becomes embroiled in the events), so perhaps it's this "too much going on" aspect that also leads to the believability creaking.
Laura Vandervoort puts in a good performance - with more energy and angst than more famous roles like V and Smallville - which keeps it watchable, but it is never quite suspenseful or thrilling enough to spark. Worth a watch if you like race-against-time style plots or strong female leads.
