C Thomas Howell was Outstanding
7 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Blaise Rybeck, (C Thomas Howell) plays the role as a private eye in California and business is not very good, his American Express card is not being paid and business is slow. However, one day a sexy blonde gal, Emma Roussell, (Sophie Ward) walks into his office and asks Blaise if he will investigate her missing brother who was a pilot and his body has not been found. Blaise starts his investigation and runs into a few wild bungee jumping guys who he believes are involved with the missing brother he is looking for. Blaise jumps off bridges to prove he is like this group of guys and seeks to obtain as much information from them as possible. The FBI gets involved with this case and this turns the entire direction of the picture with car chases, romantic scenes between Emma and Blaise and plenty of beatings and torture. Enjoy
