Let's be realistic. Why protect some birds when you have a billion dollars in fuel that can create jobs and feed millions of families while lowering the cost of fuel. Sounds a bit like the pipeline that Obama won't allow us to create.

I never tire of watching this classic tale of heroine running from danger. Hero looking for furthering his career. When their paths cross, they find themselves running for their lives. Fast paced. Clean thriller. Not crowded with foul language or overcrowded with unnecessary sex scenes. Just a well written script, outstanding actors, a modern day classic!

THIS MOVIE IS GOOD. WATCH IT. This audio play back of it was terrible. Something is wrong with the sound on it. All other video I play online sounds fine. The voices are extremely quiet and certain sound effects are missing. It's as if the balances and levels are all off. Try finding it elsewhere if you want to be able to hear it. Otherwise, great movie :)
