A surprise! A great movie done in a hurry! The BOZ is back!
22 March 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I was very surprised. A very well done movie if you are an action fan. Of course, BOZ fans will love it. Bosworth plays a former CIA Operative who gets locked up for 11 years by the US. He comes back better than ever and plays two characters in this action flick. Some corny scenes, but overall, very well done. Great soundtrack and introduction! Good editing saved this movie. The Boz is back and better than ever. It's no Stone Cold, but very good. Keep up the good work Brain! The Operative gets 3.5 out of 4 stars!
