Storyline

In a former Soviet Republic, the President is oppressing the people and with help from a former Bosnian General who's a sadist, he is extremely hated. An American reporter goes there to catch the atrocities on film but is caught. She is forced to make false statements. So the Americans sends a Special Forces unit to try and rescue her. It's a big deal for the team's leader because the Bosnian once captured him and tortured him. While there they run into a British agent who was sent there on a mission and they work together. But when they try to leave they're captured. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

One of the worst military movies in terms of filming, scenario and realism i've ever seen.
13 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

The only reason i've watched this badly filmed, cheap military action, is that another IMDB member said that there is "an unusual amount of detail & competence" in this movie. Neither detail, neither competence however can be found in it! There's total lack of realism, behaviour of the special force squad is against all army regulations and common sense! Weapon handling is comic, and ballistics are absolutely fake. This is an brilliant example of cheap millitary style movie! The only thing that deserves attention is the brilliant martial arts performance by Scott Adkins /SAS agent Talbot in the movie/. This guy is something serious! Overall, one of the worst military movies in terms of filming, scenario and realism i've ever seen.
