The Movie:
Sean Connery and Wesley Snipes star in this "thriller" about a foreign liaison (Snipes) investigating the murder of a woman at a party full of high-ranking officials and business men held by a large Japanese corporation. He gets the help of a retired foreign liaison (Connery) to try to solve the case, and ends up risking his life to find the truth, and untangle the complex web of corruption involved.

Picture and Sound:
Picture and sound quality were good. The picture is clear, although there were a few "spots" here and there that I noticed. For the most part it's a pretty good transfer. The sound is also ok, nothing special but the sound transfer was done well.

The Extras:
This disc is a real disappointment as far as extras go, and this is the reason I can't recommend you buy it really - it's a good movie, but there isn't anything but cast filmographies and trailers.

Conclusion:
Due to the lack of extras, I recommend you rent it in order to watch the movie, but don't purchase it unless you are going to watch it enough to justify it. The movie itself is pretty good, but the lack of any real extras makes this a "rent it" rather than a recommended.
