A jet full of nuclear warheads has been borrowed by military genius (Ed Harris). With the help of a contracted explosives expert, the ATF hopes to intercept the borrowed items and return them to their original owner. PETA, with the help of Stanley Benchgood (Tom Cruise), must ski through the New Jersy Turnpike to return the hijacked nuclear warheads safely to the Icelandic government.
As if this wasn't enough, he has only 12 days to do it.
With the aid of an old stick in the mud (Bruce Willis), our heroes must race through the Swiss Alps to deliver the borrowed government secrets safely to the American military. The situation turns sour as he realises that his brother's girlfriend (Angelina Jolie) has been kidnapped by the the bad guys.
Also we have the screwball antics of a sass-talking black man (Dave Chapelle) who when captured by the evildoers says: "What the FUCK!?!?"
It won't be easy seeing that a cop with a vendetta (Lawrence Fishburne) has information concerning his messy life of crime. Just as the good guys are leaving on their dangerous journey, they stupidly lapse into a sing-along of Hotel California much to the dismay of the NCAA .
At the final moment the President issues a decree to the citizens of the world. As this moment of truth happens he says: "Mankind is a creature of survival. This is the dawn of a new tomorrow." A PMRC explosives specialist watching a TV in a store window replies: "I just hope he's right."
Coming this fall.
