5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional!!! April 27, 2003
I'm a huge Bill Pullman fan anyways, but even if I wasn't before, I would be after this film. The urgency and intensity in this film is contagious, and leaves you at the edge of your seat. This film has everything... danger, emotional entanglements, suspense, romance, deception, explosions, and more! If you like action movies, you'll love this one. There are many unique and utterly charming scenes here that will make this film worthwhile for anyone's tastes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected but not great November 10, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's difficult to visualize Bill Pullman as a down-on-his-luck tough-guy police character, but he does a relatively decent job of pulling it off in this movie. In the film, he plays a character who got into trouble in the military because he wasn't happy about obeying orders that he considered to be wrong. A period of drugs and alcohol leaves him down on his luck, separated and unable to see his daughter, but there are still a few of his colleagues among the US Marshals who think he has potential. He is assigned to guard a judge who is presiding over a military lawsuit that is related to what appears to be a military plot of some kind. Much of the movie involves the judge not trusting him and not wanting his services but finally coming around after he saves her a couple of times. The story line involving the military misdeeds is a fairly standard conspiracy theory, cover-up plot which mostly seems to serve as way to get the main characters into tight situations in which they build trust and feelings for each other as they try to escape would-be assassins. This movie isn't all that terribly memorable, especially compared to big-budget thrillers like Mission Impossible, but it's certainly watchable, a few weak performances from secondary actors aside.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good actors can't help this movie August 26, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed Bill Pullman and especially Lena Olin in many other films. However, the screenplay and directing of Ignition is very poor. There was no Ignition. There are many superfluous elements that should have left on the Editor's Table. The dialog and action were never succinct. They were hard put to come to a conclusion. The actors were never prompted to perform to their capabilities. All in all I couldn't wait for the movies to finish. Nothing worked well.

5.0 out of 5 stars BILL PULLMAN IS A FAVORITE OF MINE August 24, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really like Bill Pullman, he is so good looking, and is really a great actor. He was born and raised within 50 miles of where I live, so that is his 'claim to fame' from me. This movie, like most of his movies, is full of action. Really great.
