Scary and Disturbing Scenes
The scene in which Max has a device strapped to his back that will explode if he moves and cannot be saved is very intense.
There is a prolonged fight in the last half hour of the film that might be intense for some viewers.
At the very end of the film, Jimmy has to disarm a bomb that is in the engine of his wife's car. He stops it however and nobody is harmed.
The final explosion is one of the most intense scenes.
The extreme close-ups of the contraption that Ryan built to activate the ship bomb may be too intense for some, as it keeps you on edge.
Nothing more than a formula action picture, a studio product, but well-done and fairly enjoyable. Stephen Hopkins proves (again, after "Predator 2") to be adept at filming frenetic action scenes and he shows confidence in the way he uses the camera, especially in the "long shots". Tommy Lee Jones is kind of one-note as the villain, and not very satisfying, but Jeff Bridges gives depth and credibility to his role, and the supporting cast is above-average. Oh, and there ARE some spectacular explosions. (**1/2)
