PROS AND CONS: On my second viewing of this time, I found it to be one of those rare films that was actually better than I remembered it.

This is an MTV production and it shows in the set design, fashion and soundtrack.  It is a film aimed at a younger hip audience.  What Casablanca may have been to our parent’s generation, this may be to the millennials.

The Nintendo and PS/2 set will feel right at home in this video game / cartoon inspired action thriller.  Beyond that, it is fun to watch, well paced, well written and very stylish.
