Did You Know?


This is the original storyline for "Captured" before it was rewritten into "Agent Red":

Jim Solomen ( Dolph Lundgren ) is a hired assassin, sent on a revenge mission. Bernard Abrams, a wealthy businessman, has lost his daughter Allison, to a white slave trader. Bernard wants all involved dead. The body count will determine Solomen's pay. Ten grand a head. Once Solomen reaches the Far East, he looks up and old friend Jimmy Hickox, an American, thought to be a POW. Jimmy fills Solomen's weapons order, which reads like a shopping list for a coup d'etat. But he has little to offer in the way of information, except a warning that his mission is suicide. Solomen must infiltrate the country using his past government connections to obtain an F14 fighter plane and a US Navy LA class submarine. As he pursues Allison's kidnappers, he hears of their systematic destruction. Each new clue leads to another notch in the body count, and the leveling of another city block. Of course, those attacked bite back. Initially, they are only local groups, but it is soon revealed that the Triad Mafia is a big part of the ugliness, and then it worsens, as the government rears its ugly head. But Solomen keeps killing, a mutilating machine. He is being chased as hard as he chases. Now in the country, he must fight his way out. Until a final surprising conflict, in which he rights all wrongs, and puts an end to a big part of the slave trade. See more »

So bad it's, well, bad.
2 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Wow... where to start... I'm still reeling from the experience of watching this piece of garbage and I think I'm permanently brain damaged after being exposed to it. Words cannot express how terrible this movie is. I don't care how bad that J. Lo movie "Gigli" is, it will not hold a candle to this waste of matter for pure crappiness. Dolph Lundgren is a marine -(who apparently is the only member of the entire US armed forces who can fly a stealth fighter in footage lifted from another crappy Dolph movie)- that must go board a sub in Russia so that some chemical weapon that the Russians stole from the Americans during the cold war can come back to the US. On board is Dolph's "ex-fiance", who aside from looking like a reject from a Ron Jeremy movie, is also possibly the worst actress to ever set foot on the planet. I had to look up this "actress" to see what other suckers have hired her for movies and found out two things.... 1. thankfully, she's not "in demand" and 2. Her shoddy acting is eclipsed only by her amazing spelling; I think her name is "Melanie" but it looks like some sort of indecipherable mumbo jumbo the way it is spelled. Anyway, I'm off track... this movie is pure crap.. not even one of those "watch with your friends after some herbal refreshment" movies... Everything from the recycled (and butchered) storyline of terrorists on a sub, where every possible cliche is used (and screwed up) to the awful performances, to the terrifyingly bad dialogue. This is the kind of movie that I think can be used as a torture device. There is one saving grace though, after watching the performances in this stinker, you'll be appreciating the master thespianism that is one Jean Claude Van Damme.
