Average action movie about a murderer who kills Mossad agents
7 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

Some time after their botched operation to capture a known Palestinian terrorist named Amar Kamil (Vincent Regan) , a secret team suffers events go awry . After getting away an assassination's attempt in Luxembourg , a bunch of Israeli agents starts to get killed off one by one . Their leader (Christopher Lambert) must get to the bottom of things before the murderous plan to be completed as he takes one to kill one .

European co-production by UK|France|Luxembourg that contains action , intrigue , thrills , suspense ; however resulting to be some tiring and dull . It's a direct to video film made in low budget and failed at box-office . Based on the novel titled "The Heat of Ramadan" by Steven Hartov and screenplay by Ripley Highsmith , the film develops an intrigue about secret agents from Mossad and OLP . Regular performances from two main protagonists Christopher Lambert and his nemesis Vincent Regan . The best acting turns out Kerry Fox , a notorious British actress who has not achieved a great success. There appears in a pretty secondary role Maryam d'Abo who formerly was Bond-girl for John Glen in 'The Living daylights' . Functional cinematography by Alec Mills shot in Luxembourg , Israel and beach scenes in Nice, Alpes-Maritimes, France . Atmospheric musical score by Waltzing , including Arab and Israel sounds .

The film was produced by the Jewish Avi Nesher , being professionally made by John Glenn . John keeps this moving, though with no much originality and with some flaws and gaps . He has directed the most number of James Bond movies , totaling five . Glenn filmed various 007 outings , previously directed 2nd unit and edition on some early Bond movies . He directed several entries such as ¨Licence to kill¨, ¨A view to kill¨ , ¨For your eyes only¨ and ¨Octopussy¨ that are incredibly fast pace . The film will appeal to Christopher Lambert enthusiasts , but good for fans only . Rating : Mediocre .
