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.

Silent death...
17 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael Dudikoff plays against typecasting, as he is cast a cold blooded assassin who helps a framed FBI agent Jason Wells(Brennon Elliot)against his employers. Seems Dudikoff hates his job and seems to want a normal life(Indeed his girlfriend is a teacher, who he practically begs to keep seeing him.) make this an interesting feature. I saw this on HBO when this came out and thought of this as a very above average entry in the straight to video market. However the story is somewhat implausible and there are a few plot holes but generally this is involving stuff that makes this a lot harder edged than you would normally expect. Also Dudikoff and Elliot share good chemistry that develops momentum even in the smaller scenes.
