Bruce Payne is the main man
20 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love this film. Yes its crap but its brilliant at the same time. This is due to an excellent, camp and totally over the top performance by Bruce Payne. He takes the character of Savak to a totally new level by being ruthless, daring and funny at the same time. The bit where he throws his burger meal over marcus and screams 'horse-sh*t' at him is pure class. So is the bit in the drug dealers den 'tsk tsk' and 'ive got the guns'. It seems that Bruce Payne has the knack of taking psycho characters and turning them into something complicated (such as he did with Charles Raine in Passenger 57). I thought the long blond hair and the nose rings really added some presence to the character of Savak in this film, although how plausible it would be to have a CIA / FBI agent looking as he does, I really don't know. Great escapism - 10/10.
