Storyline

Living in the suicide shadow of his FBI-man father, second generation FBI-man Jason Wells accepts a covert assignment to infiltrate an organization known as The Group that's targeting a U.S. senator. With his own death faked, Jason Wells comes back into society (undercover) as hoodlum Jason Black, soon beneath the tutelage of trained "Group" assassin Quinn Simmons, a.k.a. The Silencer; but, with his cover later blown and plans to keep the senator safe compromised, Jason finds himself in a tangle of lies and mixed loyalties, wondering who to trust and what to believe.

Entertaining, but nothing special
17 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Average movie. Well, better than a lot of like-minded low-budget trash anyhow. Two factors that helped a lot were the rather interesting plot and the acting skills of Elliott. Why so many reviewers applaud the efforts of Dudikoff so much remains a mystery to me; his face never shows any flexibility whatever and he only creates distance for himself and for the audience. In The Silencer his flaws aren't a problem because he plays a cold-blooded killer, although when he needs to show some emotional depth, he fails miserably. Again, this is not much of a problem, because the acting skills of Elliott and the other actors involved make it all believable enough. The invention of Division 5 was creative.
