IN THE FALL OF 1997, EVERY NUCLEAR DEVICE IN THE WORLD WILL BE ACCOUNTED FOR… EXCEPT ONE.
Nuclear expert Julia Kelly (Nicole Kidman) and Special Forces colonel Tom Devoe (George Clooney) work together to find nuclear warheads that were stolen in Russia. Clooney and his ER director Mimi Leder deliver a thriller that shows concern for the volatile conditions in the former Yugoslavia, as well as where the new Russia is heading. It’s well paced and the action sequences are good enough, but the script is thin and hardly believable. Clooney is supposed to have the brawn and Kidman the brains, but their characters are silly.
1997-U.S. 123 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Mimi Leder. Cast: George Clooney (Tom Devoe), Nicole Kidman (Julia Kelly), Armin Mueller-Stahl (Dimitri Vertikov), Marcel Iures, Alexander Baluev, Rene Medvesek.
