More than any film I can remember in a long time, I have never understoodwhy this film hasn't gotten higher ratings than it has. The plot, while notingenious (and even somewhat predictable) is still exciting and will keepyou engrossed.<br><br>The film's creators get a lot of points in my book for locale creativity.Instead of setting the film in some predictable location such as New York,Los Angeles, Miami or San Francisco they set it in Pittsburgh, PA,definitely not your ordinary movie location. It's one that adds a wonderfulfreshness to the movie however.<br><br>The location shooting is outstanding. The scenery is different andexcellent, the photography is great, even spectacular in places and theaction is on a par with some of the best action films ever, includingBullitt. Who would normally think to expect extensive boating and wateraction in a state as synonymous with mountains as Pennsylvania is? Thatalone is worth taking a look at this movie.<br><br>I do not usually care much for Bruce Willis. I thought he was very well castin this movie however and Sara Jessica Parker added extra special chemistry.The cast is much better than average overall and includes such outstandingactors as Andre Braugher, of the outstanding tv series "Homicide". I thoughtthat the casting in general, as well as the photography, location and actionvery adequately made up for any possible deficiencies in the plotitself.<br><br>I would warn that there is extensive foul language in this film, more thanis necessary even for a film of this genre in my opinion and probably it'sbiggest drawback. I would still say that the film is well worth watchingwhen your in the mood for some escapist fun and action fare. As I saidearlier, I think the film deserves higher ratings than it's gotten so far.I've watched it twice now (it was just as good the second time, in fact evenbetter) and that definitely won't be the last time I watch it.
