"The movie plot looked so tired and dumb that I assumed there would be a lot of good ass-kicking and people getting their heads blown off. So I rented it. To be sure, there were some cool fights, but long, tedious scenes of the "top bad guy" yelling at his inept henchmen and plot over-development kept the fireworks from happening until the end and even that was a little weak and stunted.
The plot device that kept getting in the way was the hallucinagenic drug theme. Snipes' character, Dean Cage, is injected with a drug that makes him believe he's in a past combat situation and his friend is in danger. Any suggestion is automatically believed - at one point he's told "You're on fire" and immediately we see his legs burst into flame. That was sort of neat, but they bang on this drum and rely on the theme that Cage is a poor hapless dupe so much - so sad for a renter who expected to some serious ass-whooping. Should have read some other reviews first, I guess!"
