Storyline

A US Treasury Agent finds himself in opposition with his fellow agents who are involved in gun running. This puts him on the run and into the hands of a Greek mafia chief whom he saves from an assassination attempt by the agency. Actually he had become attracted to the mafia chief's wife, who reminds him of his comatose wife, and in saving her also saved the chief. All of which sets up an affair between the agent and the wife. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Very ordinary action flick
15 December 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Shelter" is a very mediocre B-flick which tells of an ATF agent in Arkansas who hides out with a Greek mafia gun runner when he learns his own people are corrupt. Sound implausible?? Well, it's no more implausible than the cars which explode like 100 gallons of napalm or the firefights were the handgun wins out over the automatic rifles, etc...all stuff we've seen before. "Shelter" offers some shootouts, some rolling action, some stunts, some pyro, and not much sex all held together with an unlikely story and an attempt to make the film better with some good camera work, sets, lighting, etc. A mediocre watch for action junkies only.
