DATE VIEWED: 12/14/2015


FORMAT: LaserDisc

TIME RIDDEN / FILM LENGTH: 1 hour 33 minutes

DISTANCE RIDDEN WHILE VIEWING: 22.6 miles

TOTAL CINEMA MILES LOGGED: 3646.5 miles

SYNOPSIS: An federal agent and a career criminal both have seven days to complete their respective tasks.  

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: People under pressure and the relationships that they have, both on a personal and professional level.   

PROS AND CONS: Not a bad film, just a competent film.  The plot to this story is linear, it starts and point “A” and ends at point “B” and there are not a lot of twist or turns or surprises.  

Not all well known Hollywood actors can star in blockbusters that won Academy awards.  There has to be film work in between to help pay the bills and practice your craft.  Such is the case here.  

While an interesting film to watch, I never really got wrapped up in it and instead found myself checking out the period clothing and cars, not to mention appearances by numerous well known thespians in smaller supporting roles.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
