Trivia

Washington, D.C., with its miles of gleaming government buildings, served as a backdrop for the group's frustrating visit to the nation's capital when they seek help for Harry's rescue. Because cameras were not allowed inside the buildings, the offices of congressmen and state department officials were studio reconstructions. See more »

who wrote this thing
12 July 2005 | by lionel-libson-1See all my reviews

The cast and the plot outline suggested an action-packed thriller. Instead, through a lack of intelligence, or just laziness, we get a cartoon,filled with irksome inconsistencies...examples-they're captured and thrown in a hellhole prison, but manage to keep coke, cigarette lighters a large,fresh cigar and wardrobe changes, for later use. with no obvious bulges in their pockets, or travel gear of any kind, they find seemingly endless ammo clips They are able to survive without water(no canteens), and constantly endanger the mission with meaningless tantrums. Finally,successfully, they return home in triumph to be greeted by a bunch of people we've never seen before, or merely in passing. Lives were lost,but no one seems to care or remember.

Even for me, a waste of time.
