Damn it, I thought this was directed by Marc Caro co-director of Delicatssen and City of Lost Children.

Looks like a mid-90s - very early 2000s actioner. And not even a good one at that. I did laugh that when listing the cast, Jennifer Lopez' name was followed by a slow ECU of her ass. Had a man directed this flick, we'd hear so many folks ranting that was sexist.

I think I've seen this movie a thousand times already. They just change the leads and location and give it a different title.

Lopez looks fantastic - especially for an almost 54 year old.
In a few more years when time finally starts catching up with her and her body/looks quickly decline - she's going to be on suicide watch since she'll have nothing else to fall back on... like good acting abilities or a non-fake personality.

Jennifer Lopez as a sniper is almost as believable as Denise Richards as a nuclear scientist.

I’m sure it is just a coincidence that they’re releasing this on Mother’s Day weekend.

I watched this last night. All I will say it's a very forgettable straight to video 90s action movie. The plot didn't really make sense and there really wasn't that much action. And wasn't Joseph Fiennes at one point considered an A-list actor? I guess Handmaid's Tale is the biggest thing he's acted in recently.

Overall, this did feel low budget.

I personally like Jennifer Lopez, but I won't remember this movie a week from now.
