This is a *grerat* movie and a feel-good film to boot. Ignore the negative reviewers, they don’t have a life.
Bottom line is that this movie combines an excellent depictiion of the amorality of US covert operations, with a lovely juxtaposition of Wesley Snipes at his best, and two English lovlies, one a Scotland Yard inspector whose father is murdered by the Americans “on official business” and the other a lost young lass who is a good liar, loves horses, and saves the day.
Wesley Snipes is in my top ten action heros, and I am adding this DVD to my list of Great Spy DVDs.
Some really good non-fiction in this general area:
Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA
Lost History: Contras, Cocaine, the Press & ‘Project Truth’
Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion
Licensed to Kill: Hired Guns in the War on Terror
Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
Why We Fight
