Jack 'Rudy' Rudisill: There's just something wrong with that. A friend is someone who doesn't fuck your wife.
Lt. Franklin L. Severence: I never said Santee was a friend. I said he was like a son to me.
Jack 'Rudy' Rudisill: That makes it worse, doesn't it?
Lt. Franklin L. Severence: Oh yeah, much worse.

very good action flick
24 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This undoubtedly, is the best Dolph Lundgren film I've ever seen. You'll have to take into consideration that I'm not a big fan of Mr. Lundgren. This movie had great action scenes. You can tell that John Woo had a strong influence on the producers and directors because one special shootout looked very reminiscent of John Woo's type of filmmaking. This movie also has to feature, I think, one of the best car chases in a straight to home video film ever. It's sad that movies like these don't get highly promoted or promoted at all, therefore they become lost in the film world, where nobody discovers them for the true action movies that they really are. Watch this movie, you will not be dissapointed.
