-->'''Dimitri Vertikoff:''' Kodoroff's generation of officers grew up in a crumbling system. Those pictures in your head of Russia; bread lines, shitty little apartments, ancient cars... Kodoroff and his friends made sure that it never applied to them. But now, even ''that'' system is crumbling.

A collision of Russian trains results in a nuclear explosion that turns out to be a cover for theft of other weapons. An official in the US State Department overseeing nuclear weapons, Dr Julia Kelly (Kidman) and a US Army Special Forces officer LTC Tom [=DeVoe=] (Clooney) must work together to find and recover the stolen nukes before they can be used. The movie was filmed in Slovakia and parts of the former Eastern Bloc as well as UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. An example of the post-[[{{TheGreatPoliticsMessUp}} Cold War]] era in film making, it still retains a great deal of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar focus on the Russian threat and American world supremacy.

In a movie about WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell, no less![[note]]For the geographically impaired, neither Turkey nor Iran HAS a border with Russia.

* EmptyQuiver: only regarding Russian nukes this time.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: [=DeVoe=]'s personality is fairly well presented with his [[HauledBeforeASenateSubcommittee testimony before a Senate Subcommittee]] on the interception of a shipment of nerve gas. [[LetMeGetThisStraight To note]]; it involved a Russian colonel friend, a hooker, and a $5,200 bar tab(that resulted in a {{Bar BRAWL}}). And he paid off the colonel by smuggling in a SUV for the colonel's teenage daughter.



* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Gavrić has a brother who [[spoiler:carries the backpack bomb. And a wife and a daughter whose deaths sparked his StartOfDarkness]].
* EveryManHasHisPrice: At one point, Dr. Kelly questions Colonel [=DeVoe's=] ethics due to his aptness in using bribery to get things done in Eastern Europe. He returns her scorn by explaining that when in Rome, you bribe like the Romans...
* FacialRecognitionSoftware: Portrayed properly for the technology of the 1990's.
