Storyline

In the future, the US Marshalls work for bounty rather than a regular fee. At one point, a bounty on a assassin from Hong Kong is doubled by the Chinese government, and all Marshalls go after this one target to secure their pension. But there might be things hidden by the Chinese special forces. Written by Maarten Hofman <imdb.to.cashimor@neverbox.com>

A nice view of the future with interesting complications
23 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Of course, this movie could be a great start of a series on television. It is fun to see all the hidden jokes about the past in it, and despite some of the technology being rather unlikely, it is crisply put together. Another delightful aspect is that very few people die: the US Marshalls use bullets that cause people to fall asleep rather than die, which reduces the amount of deaths rather drastically.

Another thing that is interesting is the thing that the heroes of the movie are trying to prevent, which is the opposite of what you might expect. But I don't want to spoil your fun, so if you want to know more about that part, you should probably watch the movie.
