Plot

Here's something original; a man is let out of prison to do a job for the government that they just can't "officially" do themselves. Mike Riggins is in the toughest Russian Prison but is offered a job to rescue an American woman from a Russian Warlord in exchange for money and his release. Of course he takes it and, as usual, there is a lot more to the story than he's being told. He goes from rescuer to hunted.

Pros

If you're a fan of gunplay and car chases (you're a male under the age of 14) then this movie is right up your alley; there's even a couple of shots of bare women's breasts to keep you going. And let's not forget the cute female lead and the fun ending.

Cons

Let's see, where to start. The acting is sub-par, the chase scenes (which are plentiful) were really bad, lot's of gunplay with very little accuracy or logic in what they were targeting and the premise that a six foot five inch man can successfully sabotage and move around a heavily manned and armed military compound in broad daylight unnoticed.

Extras

  • None

Recommendation

This film is for the aforementioned boys 14 and under and for adults that are in some way impaired. I bought it just because it was cheap (especially for a Blu-Ray) and Michael Paré was in it, this isn't the first time I've regretted this decision.
