The film ran for 3 hours and 20 minutes so not only was it Extremely Dangerous, but extremely long. Ponderously so and could have used a spot of editing. There was an opportunity for a tight narrative that was squandered here. The plot was great, and far more complex than The Fugitive, where the killer was the ever elusive one armed man. But this film was made for television and so had to fit into 4 episodes of 50 minutes apiece.
The acting was brilliant; kudos to the whole cast. I especially liked the taxi dispatcher Ali Khan (Nitin Ganatra) which was played with much pluck and humor. Sean Bean did a great job as a man struggling with the loss of his entire family and wrongly convicted of it. He gets to play the secret agent who can kill with a glance and does a super job of that too.
Because of the length of the film I can only give it
**** of five stars.
