Zagarino goes through the motions
5 March 2003 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

While no originality or style can be found in this humdrum actioner, there seems to be a reliable audience for it and Frank Zagarino has made a modest career of catering to its worldwide fans. Here he gets involved in the usual mix of explosions, car chases, fights, and shootouts, leavened by a touch of sex in a hot-tub. The plot makes little sense but simply lurches from incident to incident and elements such as dialog and character development are kept to a minimum. While the movie begins in Somalia, the bulk of the movie takes place three years later in Asia, and the connection between the two locales seems tenuous.

Martin Kove makes a better-than-usual villain but one wonders why both he and Zagarino are seen in identical pairs of black bikini briefs. Do they shop at the same underwear boutique? Incidentally, in the hero-being-tortured scene, which is a fixture in these movies, Zagarino doesn't wear any underwear at all as, hanging naked by his wrists and showing off his pale but muscular buns, he's beaten with a chain. The beating must not have been severe because, when his back is shown later, there's no sign of trauma on it. Maybe he's just a quick healer.

And yes, I did watch in the opening sequence for a cameo appearance by that fine actor, Peter Engholm.
