"This so-called international thriller was so dreadful that I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. The team of four writers who wrote this trash should be imprisoned for crimes against humanity. The eight producers who brought it to the market should be tried for conspiracy to cause brain death. It was that bad.This film was horrible in all regards. The production standards were below TV quality. The photography was poor, the sound was muddy and the music was pure garbage. The premise was interesting; that the U.S. planted atomic bombs in all its embassies in the Soviet Union and Eastern block countries during the cold war to give them first strike capability. Now that the cold war was over the U.S. was disarming all the bombs, but the last one was in an embassy taken over by a group of terrorists. Our heroes (Daryl Hannah and Peter Weller) had to disable it before the terrorists got control of it.The presentation of the story was abysmal. The dialogue was so bad that I was literally guffawing between eye rolls. Some scenes were so implausible that I had to wonder what the writers were smoking. For instance, our heroes are clanking through the ventilation system, trying desperately to find a way to get downstairs to the bomb to disable it. Terrorists were all around killing one hostage an hour. So, this would be a perfect time to start necking in the air duct, right? The writers thought so.Daryl Hannah and Tom Berenger did their best to bring credibility to their ridiculous characters with some success. Peter Weller was awful. His character had a batch of very stupid lines, which he was able to elevate to absurdity.I rated this film a 2/10. Do not see this film under any circumstances. Action junkies might be tempted because of the enormous body count. Resist."
Nowhere near reality

"The movie is awful, the dialog abuse against the cast, but......if you happen to be assigned to the (real - not the movie) US Embassy in Bucharest, and happen to be the real technical security officer (computers, alarms, and such), and just happen to have offices in the basement (where the mythical nuclear bomb is) - well, the movie is simply a scream! Boy, if only Daryl Hannah would come down to the basement and visit me some time...I tell you, reality can never match Hollywood (either for shear moron stupidity or pure exaggeration). Not recommended unless you've been posted here, and really need to get a laugh about the old place!"

"Dreadful wannabe action movie attempts every cliché hurdle and falls every time. Only partially relieved by several unintentionally hilarious set pieces... the toilet elevator kidnap, the (completely unerotic) sex scene featuring Peter Weller's socks, the wet-towel-on-head ploy and the HUGE amount of noise made by our heroes as they attempt to sneak through the air ducts. Oh I forgot the laser beam/pocket mirror scene!Oh, and the Pentagon Chiefs of Staff/NSA - the least believable casting ever. Check out the guy with the suit three sizes too big ...Poor Tom Berenger. They can't have shown him the complete script."
