Trond Espen Seim,
A marketing consultant, who has a psychological sensitivity to corporate symbols, is hired to seek the creators of film clips anonymously posted to the internet - before uncovering a larger conspiracy.
The basic plot of this film concerns a secret service-esque man in Mexico battling personal demons who discovers a conspiracy behind an assassination attempt on a visiting American senator.
This is one of those films that is below average but not bad enough to strongly dislike. It is watchable.
Its problem is that it suffers from cliches and unintentional hilarity, as well as uninspired action scenes. The characters too often become brain dead simply because the script requires them to do so.
I will say that the plot background (political conflict in Central America) was more interesting than in most action films.
