Listless, boring action adventure about a computer hacker (Hugh Jackman) recruited by a top-secret government official (John Travolta), who plans to siphon out money from various government projects in order to perform terrifying terrorist attacks on America and therefore increase the White House’s involvement in anti-terrorist funding. The action is weary, the characters stiff as cardboard and the various attempts at spicing the story up with a little sex laughable at the very least.
