This is an exciting story. Well written and a gripping plot. I was very excited to see where and how it ended.
Travolta is a great bad guy. He is perfect in this role and has proven to be so on several occasions. Denzel Washington is also brilliant. But is he wearing a "fat suit" in some of the scenes?
This edition is a remake of a version made in the 70s. I have been told that the original is even better, so I guess I will have to add that one to my watch list as well.
If you enjoy exciting stories and a well played terrorist antagonist, this is definitely recommendable.
