The gunfight in the warehouse where Santee, with a gun in either hand, mows down a small army of Asian heavies is a direct homage to the "Heroic Bloodshed" action sequences of John Woo, despite the absence of doves. At the Premiere, Vic Armstrong was horrified to encounter Woo himself. "Sorry, John," he mumbled. "I'm kind of ripping you off in one scene in this movie." Unperturbed, John Woo replied "Don't worry about it, Vic. I've been stealing from you for years." See more »

This movie surprised me. You don't expect much when you starts watching movie with Dolph Lundgren. But this turn out to be a great action-flick. The thing that is worst (as always in this kind of productions) is the acting. Dolph is bad, he just sits there with his stone-face and looks concentrated. Kristian Alfonson looks good but she can't act so well.
But the moments of action in the movie is good. The shooting is pretty much belieavble, except the shooting of chineses at the end. The car chase is a great piece of work but what can you expect when the director has made action-scenes in Tomorrow Never Dies, Starship Troopers and Total Recall.
See it and enjoy it.
