Storyline

Professional mercenary Karl Thomasson, his friend Macy, and an albanian girl are being held in a brutal Kosovo prison where Macy is severely beaten. Just before he dies, Macy gives Karl a medal to give to Macy's daughter Nicole Stewart, who is a professor of english at Eastern Atlantic University on Long Island in New York. Karl and the Albanian girl then escape, and Karl kills their two captors. Three months later, Karl shows up at the university and visits Nicole, who is reluctant to accept Macy's medal because due to his military obligations, Macy was out of Nicole's life more than he was in it. Soon after Karl visits Nicole, she is brutally beaten up. When Karl hears of this, he has his friends Ed Lincoln and Rahmel help him take over as Nicole's substitute under a false name, then Karl brings another mercenary friend named Andy in on the investigation of the beating so Andy can work with Karl, Ed, and Rahmel. Karl believes it was a member of the football team who did it then he ... Written by Todd Baldridge <sandib@mis.net>

Good movie like Death Wish series where good overcomes evil, in general
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To watch enjoyably, engage in willing suspension of disbelief. That is, enjoy as you would the Roadrunner. Schools on high school level or colleges, no matter how small, do NOT have teachers or students like this. BUT, this being fiction allows the watcher to engage in hero worship and share the role of the hero without knowing what is to develop next. It does give the viewer the chance to enjoy seeing good prevail over evil, justice over injustice, and persistence over passive acquiescence. The introduction of new gimmicks as weaponry that get the job done without the atypical bloodletting of the horror series which lose characters faster than an exodus of patrons from "D" movie. Treat Williams is, again, a treat as a martial arts specialist who can show the value of defense versus aggression. The classroom scene by itself is worth the price of admission. To see adverse elements like drugs, alcohol, and steroids put into their proper negative position is a positive effect on youthful viewers and a reminder to the older generation. This is not an Oscar worthy film nor does it pretend to be. It is fiction with a non-fiction lesson to be learned -- that steroids are bad, that justice is good, and that violence is not always best served by more violence.
