US foreign-service agent Milla Jovovich dashes hither and thither across London and New York trying to foil a dastardly terrorist plot single-handed.

She’s been framed for murder and is on the run from both the authorities and Pierce Brosnan’s grim-faced freelance assassin, the Watchmaker.

All this might have been a lot of fun, but this flat-footed action thriller is lumbered with dodgy dialogue and a hokey plot.

A shame, as the big-name cast – which also includes Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster – should have been able to deliver so much more.
