funny and amused film with action packed and spectaculars images
The film talks about a marine(Keenen Ivory Wayans)condemned on death row but he breaks out and is recruited by a USA General(John Voight) constituting a secret operation group .The objective team is to kill assassins and delinquents and acting as judge,jury and executer preventing traditional law enforcement. However in his first mission happen death of the First Lady and the events led to him .All the forces, Cia(deputies Paul Sorvino and Eric Roberts),Militars(Voight,Eddie Velez) and Police are looking for him and he is attacked and pursued from all sides ,making desperate attempts to escape and even going into an highway with cars driving fast speed in a breathtaking scenes. Film captures the special excitement of the protagonist for the continued pursuits and he can see no way out ,being only helped by a beautiful woman(Jill Henessy)killing's witness.
Picture has maximum suspense,emotion and tension from the subsequents try of the starring to get away and resolve the enigma about the crime.Film is exciting and tense,besides is plenty of action,violence,shoot out, at time brilliant luster and big budget.Although is a standard actioner is fast movement with atmospheric action set pieces and extremely entertained and bemused. Keenen Ivory Wayans(Scary movie,Glimmer man) is a stunningly action hero.Jill Henessy(Crossing Jordan) is enjoyable and attractive).Special mention to John Voight(deliverance,midnight cowboy,Pearl Harbour) as a crazed and evil General in a sensationalistic and overblown interpretation. The movie is rightly directed by David Hogan(better than Barbwire film). The flick will like to action movies fans
