Format: DVD
My wife suggested this movie while browsing in the local video store mainly because of her fascination for all things Brosnan whom she has liked since she first saw Remington Steele.
Very reminiscent at the outset of Blown Away, the premise suggests that the US, so long immune from terrorist threat, may be subject to internal terroism. As the plot proceeds, one is reminded of the storyline of Die Hard where a supposed terrorist is nothing but a robber.
Themeans by which the terror is spread is an explosive which is detonated by the human body itself and thus leaves no trace. Brosnan appears as an explosives expertwith a personal life in turmoil instigated in the first instance by the accidental drowning of his young daughter in the family swimming pool and an estranged wife allegedly in the midst of a relationship with a senator.
It is clear from the start that there is no terorist in the sense of a freedom fighter but there is a ruthless murderer who uses a terrorist approach to secure a ten million dollar payoff which he has been swindled out of.
The story proceeds at a good pace with hardly any time to draw breath but really does not carry the viewer with it. The scenes are all shot in glorious sunshine which shows off the Washington tourist attractions to good effect but which also serves to reduce the impact of the story. Similarly the extensive inclusion of insiders in the senate reduces the plausibilty of the plot. I was disturbed too by the focus on the ease by which Brosnan's character concocts explosives using highly visible ingredients in order to defeat the baddies. Although I do not like the idea of censorship I do question the judgement of film producers to educate the weak minded in this way.

Format: DVD
In the hiatus between Remington Steele and his stint as James Bond, Pierce Brosnan gave us this neat little action thriller in which he plays a bomb disposal expert called in to solve some high profile killings using an exotic new material. This is a competent little thriller with a bit of action thrown in.

This film is great for any fans of CSI type storylines. With great acting by all and a great script you can't go wrong. The seller had a few problems in getting this DVD to me, however, they were communicative and went above and beyond the expected service requirements. I cannot praise this seller enough and will not hesitate to buy from them again.

LIVE WIRE (Region 1 US & Canada, New Line dvd)
Pierce Brosnan (as James Bond in Die Another Day) is riverting in this explosive political action-thriller.

Brosnan is Danny O`neil, the FBI`s ace bomb expert and "Live Wire," His wife (Lisa Eilbacher)is flaunting her affair with a senator (Ron Silver), the very man he`s been assigned to protect against terrorist attacks. But his biggest enemy is the one he can`t see. It`s a lethal new bomb diguised as water. Held by a pyschopathic terrorist (Ben Cross), It`s the most undetectable and deadly weapon known to man. In the tense final minutes, O`Neil decides the fate of his wife, her lover and the entire city of washington, D.C.

I am pleased to finally get this dvd; the packaging is intact, but it hasn't been opened yet as it is a Christmas present. I have no doubt that it will be fine. Thank you for prompt and efficient service.
