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.

To attach the nomenclature, "suspensful," to this film would be putting it mildly. This film is a riveting piece of cinema, to say the least. Any movie that features a professional mercenary in a leading role is definitely quality. After all, the action that issues from a mercenary can in no way be paltry. ANd, when mercenaries meet football jocks, things ALWAYS get interesting, especially when drugs are involved. The way Karl spells his name indicates that he is a force to be reckoned with. The K suggests that Karl may be German, and everyone knows that Germans are fighters. Stalwart Karl fights for what he believes in and is a true hero. This film is gripping from beginning to end, and I would recommend it to everyone
