Victoria BC doubles for Russia AND Boston? Incredible but true!
30 September 2009 | by (Duncan, Canada) – See all my reviews

You have to give direct to video vet Robert Lee credit for resourcefulness. This 2000 low budget opus hopscotches from Russia to Boston and yet the movie was shot entirely in Victoria British Columbia. Footballer turned action hero Brian Bosworth (Stone Cold) plays a CIA agent who busts out of an asylum in Kiev and escapes to Boston, only to be kidnapped by the local branch of the Russian Mafia. Viewed as a low budget local production The Operative has an engagingly amateurish quality, like a home movie on steroids. The dialogue is howlingly awful unless you regard it as a sloppy satire on Z grade action pics, in which case lines like " "They say danger is the ultimate aphrodisiac. Personally I don't think you need danger to be horny" make a weird kind of sense. Recommended to would be producers looking for tips on how to get a lot of bang for very few bucks and/or action fans who think Dolph Lundgren movies are too cerebral.
