Storyline

In Los Angeles a deadly plague called the 'Pandora' virus is stolen from a high-security installation, and the F.B.I. calls in Agent Alec 'Mac' Mckay to follow up the leads. A trained virologist, he discovers the culprit is one of the world's top researchers. He discovers the man has a safety box in a bank vault and a trap is laid to capture both the doctor and reclaim the virus. Meanwhile, Julie Hayes discovers her do-well brother Scotty has become involved in the plan to rob a bank... The very bank that the F.B.I. is now watching in their bid to reclaim the Pandora virus. An unwilling accomplice, Julie tries to alert the bank staff, unaware that the man she thinks is a bank teller is in fact Mac working undercover. Things go from bad to worse when the errant doctor, looking tense and terrified, arrives with a tall, blond-haired, leather-clad man whom the watching agents identify as St. Joy, the leader of the L.R.A., a well-known doomsday cult. St. Joy wants Pandora. He wants Pandora... Written by Helen Chavez

Shakedown!
7 December 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This film titled Shakedown is a good one! Ron Perlman stars along with Wolf Larson, Erika Eleniak, and Fred Dryer. Perlman is is great in this film. His performance as the bad guy in this film is really good and he looks very neat! I thought the training camp scenes with him were great! All of the other actors are good in this film as well. The action is really good. Fans of shoot em up films will like the action here! The earthquake scenes are also very good and I was in awe when i saw some of the scenes! One thing I noticed in the film is strange. Its when Perlman is talking to Brandon Karrer's character. I noticed that when the musical score was playing that part there was the very same piece of music that is in Hollow Man. The 10th track is titled Find Him on the Hollow Man Score CD. If you own the CD and/or are familiar with the film then you will know what I mean. Watch Shakedown and compare it! Anyway Shakedown is a good film and is very exciting. If you like Ron Perlman and the other actors I mentioned above and want to see a good disaster action film then I strongly recommend this film!
