This film received mixed reviews when it debuted in 1998. But watching it after the events of September 11th is a haunting experience. It deals with terrorist cells, hijacking in New York City, lack of cooperation between Federal agencies, violations of civil liberties, and the torture of prisoners. Why don't we learn from the past, even if it's fictional?
