comments

(12A) 89min

Eight strangers try to unlock the truth behind an assassination attempt on the US president. After the assassination of President Ashton (William Hurt) on his way to an important summit in Spain, secret service agents Thomas Barnes (Dennis Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Mathew Fox), tourist Howard Lewis (Forest Whitaker), American TV news producer Rex Brooks (Sigourney Weaver) are among those trying to put the puzzle together. Competently made but ridiculously silly and badly acted thriller which attempts to pollinate Oliver Stone’s JFK with Groundhog Day.
