Eddie (Keanu Reeves) works on a scientific team that is searching forlow-cost energy sources that are good for the environment, too. One day, itseems that such a discovery has been made. Soon after, however, the chiefscientist is murdered and the invention stolen. Eddie and fellow teammember Dr. Lily Sinclair (Rachel Weisz) are suspects in the murder and areforced to go on the run. Naturally, the police and the FBI are in hotpursuit. Another team member Paul (Morgan Freeman) may have some secrets tohide as well. Will the truth come out and will the fleeing duo becaptured?<br><br>This movie is mostly a chase picture and a moderately successfulone.Much of the action is centered on the capture of Eddie and Lily. There isan impressive scene, for example, where Eddie is trying to avoid seizure byclimbing a raised bridge. Unfortunately, not all of the scenes are aseffective. The scientific elements are quickly rushed over, causing someconfusion as to what has transpired. As for the romance between Reeves andWeisz, it is nicely subdued. It's there but only manifests itself in a fewembraces. Although the ending is quite exciting, the overall effect of themovie as an action flick is only partly realized. There are some missingplot elements that would have raised it to a higher level. Recommended as afairly good action motion picture; Reeves fans, certainly, will enjoyit.
