Storyline

Former government Jason Price (Dolph Lundgren) makes people disappear for a living. But when a top lieutenant for a crime syndicate asks Price to help him drop out of sight, things take a grisly, unexpected turn. A mysterious hit man known as The Cleaner has infiltrated Price's tightly-controlled system, leaving a bloody trail behind. With the help of an enigmatic seductress posing as the mobster's chief assistant, Price methodically works through his network of associates to find out what went wrong, and is plunged headlong into a spiraling gauntlet of half-truths and full-blown lies where nobody is who they appear to be, and everyone has a deadly, hidden agenda...

Top class techno thriller.
4 December 2002 | by (Henley on thames, England) – See all my reviews

This was a surprisingly good film I must say. I didn't expect much and only got it out because of a rather nifty name and front cover, but then again how many Lorenzo Lamas films have had good names and covers? Lots, and how many have been crap? All! So after 90 minutes I was pretty happy. I like films like Spy Game and Enemy of the State and this film is similar. While not as good, it does do a better than most job of it and does so with a 5 million budget.

I thought the script was pretty good; there is a sense of mystery running throughout the film and the way it is written is quite smart especially when you consider that most b-movie scriptwriters are probably the real life versions of Ernest or Kelly Bundy (arf arf!), but this film made a surprising and efficient thriller. The sense of mystery that meanders through the film is good, its like an episode of the X-files, you need to leave things in a sense of wonder before revealing all at the end, and this film succeeds where most of its type would fail.

The cast are surprisingly good. Dolph Lundgren has rarely been as interesting. His character is imposing for reasons other than his muscles and large stature, he is intelligent and domineering and he runs a tight nit crew. The two ladies are good particularly the sexy foreign bird. As I said Lundgren is pretty good. It's a fairly simple role for him, which is good, while it also adds dimensions and he has an aura about him. Some of his lines are great and he delivers them with intensity and aplomb.

Now to the action, well if you like martial arts then this will not let you down. There are some cracking fight sequences with some good use of freeze frames. The opening action scene is the best, its pulse pounding and exciting and ends after an impressive car chase down an airport runway. I did find that, like most economically challenged movies, that the shootouts were quite average, trying to hide the fact that the can't afford the same amount of squibs that John Woo would use for the emptying of a single clip, still there was only really two shootout bits and the second was much better. Also some great explosions, they looked cool and were well filmed. Even in the biggest films, explosions can be a let down, but not here, you can't go wrong with an explosion at night time in falling snow, it looks so cool. Sorry, I sounded 12 years old for a second!

The star of this film is undoubtedly the cinematography. It is great. It gives the movie a glossy sheen and makes it look like it should be showing in your local cinema, instead of plonked straight into your ps2 or DVD player.

Overall I would say that hands down it beats Arnold and Sly's recent films, in fact all of Arns since True lies. Definitely worth a watch, unlike most straight to video flicks, the good points outweigh the bad. ***1/2/*****
