Petulant thriller made by numbskulls and aimed at numbskulls
Demi Moore gives a sullen performance as an artist and single mom who is harassed by mobsters while serving jury-duty on murder trial involving Mafia Godfather. Overwritten, inconsistent film attempts to outweigh its campier aspects with mind-thriller clichés (such as Alec Baldwin's role as a egomaniacal hit-man) but results are still closer to "Murder, She Wrote" than to anything resembling Tom Clancy. Would probably pass muster as your basic, dumb time-waster were it not for a ridiculous climax in Guatemala. Moore is grim throughout, and Baldwin (pursing his modulated lips and narrowing his eyes) is a poser here--not an actor. Anne Heche does what she can with a best-friend role and there are a few rousing scenes, but the off-kilter script buries the good points, giving way to a pushy, unpleasant and occasionally offensive movie. ** from ****
