Enjoyable
26 June 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

To give you an idea of how impatient I was to watch this movie : between the moment I discovered it existed and the moment I completed my order, no more than 15 seconds elapsed. I couldn't believe nobody had told me there was a film with Robert Davi and Alexander Godunov, two actors I worship, in the leading parts. It was Godunov's last film.

The story is rather simple : Robert Davi is a soldier who is framed for murder by the CIA boss. He is forced to go to Moravash (what a silly name for an imaginary Eastern European country!) to destroy Lothar Krasna's nuclear processing plant.

I found the pace of this movie awful, with scenes that dragged on and on. The music was unbearable at times (think nails on blackboard). The technology was laughable (the nuclear plant is destroyed by a toy car - they didn't even bother to make it look like something technologically more advanced!). However I had a really nice time watching it.

Parts of it fell into the "so bad it's good" category. For instance, from the moment when Davi enters the plant, you can see the same shade of blue paint everywhere, and I mean everywhere : the truck, the walls, the railings, the door... which makes me think the owner of the plant allowed them to film there in exchange for a little refurbishment. There was a lot of gratuitous nudity. Davi has a look at the women's changing room for no reason whatsoever. Lara Harris, the leading lady, looks great naked (and I'm a straight woman).

The ending was ridiculous, with the tiniest nuclear explosion ever (it manages to destroy the plant and the bad guy's plane, but not the good guy's one). But Davi's and Godunov's performances somehow hold the film together and make it really enjoyable. I will watch it again.
