release year:1998 genre:action/adventure/disaster viewing setting:theater, 1/24/98 what I expected:a flood movie with some action what I got:pretty much that
synopsis:In a small, flooded, evacuated town, an armored car robbery goes bad, leaving one guard to fend off bandits as well as corrupt officials.
impressions:This was a basic, well-written, well-filmed action movie. I do have to say that it's probably got the most flood footage & filming of any movie ever filmed. I mean, the ENTIRE movie takes place in or under water! Some good stunts and lines make this film entertaining.
acting:Christian Slater: punk, but getting better roles these days. He does okay. Morgan Freeman has a more standout role, though; he doesn't usually do characters like this, which makes his role even more fun.
final word:Worth watching, it's a fairly entertaining action movie.
