Land of opportunity
12 November 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I guess that when it was obvious that considerable film footage from the Guvernator's Red Heat it was decided that Jeff Speakman's Running Red wasn't worth a theatrical release. It was deservedly consigned to direct to video status.

Footage from Red Heat may have been used but some of this plot is ripped off from the Sidney Poitier/River Phoenix movie Little Nikita. We get a Russian prologue here where Speakman is part of a hit team led by Stanley Kamel on refinery in Spain which is protected by mercenary Bart Braverman. Braverman personally kills Speakman's brother.

Flash forward to 13 years later, the Soviet Union has fallen and Speakman, Kamel, and Braverman are all doing well. Speakman is living the American dream with wife and daughter, but Kamel and Braverman have really found America to be a land of opportunity. Only Kamel has slightly more legitimate veneer to him.

Kamel summons Speakman to do a job which involves getting Braverman. Only he has quite a bit more in mind for him.

Plot taken from one film, scenes from another. Should tell you how original Running Red is. For fans of Speakman's martial arts skills only.
