Storyline

Jonathon Cold is a freelance agent hired by a mysterious man to deliver a package from France to Germany. The contents of the package remain undisclosed, even between employer and employee, but whatever it contains seems to be attracting a swarm of political corruption, backstabbing bad guys and murder. However, Cold knows he must stay one step ahead of the evil powers at work, whoever they are, no matter what the cost, as it increasingly becomes a game of step on or be stepped on.

Trivia

The opening scene with the soldiers is an actual "change of duty" at the "Grave of an Unnamed Soldier" in Warsaw, Poland - a symbolic tribute to all those killed in the Second World War. See more »

Goofs

When Dunoir enters the hotel room where Mr. Mimms is checked in under Cold's name, he is holding two handguns. The handgun in his right hand has a silencer on the end of the barrel. However, when he fires from both handguns into the shower, no silencer is seen on the gun in his right hand, and loud gunshots are heard. When he turns in the next camera shot, the silencer is back.

How does Steve-o still have fans, anyway?
29 May 2004 | by (Chicago, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie seems somewhat promising at first, but quickly spirals into a pointless mesh of betrayal and murder. As just about everyone who's posted before me has said, this film basically follows a series of nameless, faceless people around looking for a package. In the process, roughly half of Poland's population is shot in the chest by a guy who must smoke a carton of cigarettes in the mercifully brief 90 minute running time. I don't remember the names of any of these characters or the actors who portrayed them. All I can say is that I'm sure everyone involved has seen better days.

And what's up with the editing in this movie? Does the guy in charge of postproduction really think slowing down and then quickly speeding up the film is going to add anything to the experience? Was writing a coherent story out of the question? Keep in mind these are all rhetorical questions. I intend to forget this travesty before I even hit the "submit" button.
