The Peacemaker (USA.1997)

Bloated big budget action flick that's worth a precursory glance for the matinee charm of George Clooney as an action hero hero. Short of that, it's incredibly muddled Tom Clancy-ish cyber 'Find the Bomb' thriller that has no idea what it wants to be, and in the process stuffs everything into the picture till it leaks out the sides. Mimi Rodgers make it look slick, but it the 'all over the place' nature does her now favors. She's never allowed to rack up the tension, and in effect, it actually winds down.

Still, Clooney is his magnetic self and it leads me to wish he let loose a little more often.
