Above the law, there is justice
21 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

This movie is nothing special. Although it has it's moments (e.g. Billy Drago as a good guy, LOL, have we ever seen that before??), it loses out to lots of other similar movies which are better. The plot is pretty standard. Bad guy commits heinous crime, flees to another country where he thinks he's safe, our hero follows him to settle things straight. A plot like that always has potential, but this movie wasn't able to deliver to my standards. The action scenes weren't that good, and most of time the movie is boring. Even Matthias Hues wasn't able to add anything here. It could have been worse, though, it's not terrible either. 4 out of 10
