During the fight between Danny and Al-Red (dressed as the Lemonade Clown), both guys end up submerged several times under the water in the fountain (which contained the explosive water) but yet only Al-Red suffers the effects from drinking it either. Danny was unaware of the fountain containing explosive water in it, and was submerged, so in all likeliness Danny should've suffered the same affects as Al-Red and exploded also. See more »

standard plot made view-worthy thanks to Brosnan//spoilers
I'll admit, up until watching this film, I wasn't a Brosnan fan at all. I despise all James Bond films, and associate Pierce with the tuxedo clad secret agent, even when he is playing someone different. Pierce adds plenty of depth to his character, that has become Hollywood's most cherished stereotype, the drunk law enforcement agent.
After the death of his daughter, Dan(Brosnan) seeks solace with alcohol, while his wife Teri(Eilbacher) jumps in bed with a crooked senator(Silver). For some reason Dan still loves the dirty tramp, and attempts to protect her when a group of terrorists, lead the the always dastardly Ben Cross, set their designs on the senator his wife is sleeping with.
This film doesn't lack action or excitement, but the chief reasons to catch this film is for Pierce's clever interaction with Silver's senator character, the one-liners are good, but Pierce makes them noteworthy, and Lisa Eilbacher's jaw-droppingly excellent form. It's good to be Pierce
