Blast ★★½ 2004 (R)

Mercenaries try to detonate an electromagnetic bomb over the U.S using an oil rig. A tug boat captain (Griffin) teams with an FBI agent and computer expert in order to foil the plan. Griffin is surprisingly effective as an action hero, and the proceedings, while not breaking any new ground, provide the requisite excitement and wisecracks in the “Die Hard/ Under Siege” mode. 91m/C DVD . Eddie Griffin, Vinnie Jones, Breckin Meyer, Vivica A. Fox, Tommy (Tiny) Lister, Anthony Hickox; D: Anthony Hickox; W: Steven E. de Souza; C: Giulio Biccari; M: Danny Saber. VIDEO
