Storyline

Jim Rhodes is a human rights worker in Tijuana for a few days to make sure that union elections are fair at a maquiladora owned by a U.S. corporation. In quick succession, the police assault the strikers, the bodies of 27 peasants turn up in an abandoned tunnel that has caved in, and two U.S. teen bikers are missing. As Rhodes pokes around and speculates on connections among these events, he's beaten up, warned off by a drug dealer's attorney, and given varying degrees of help by the U.S. State Department rep, the U.S. Trade rep, and an honest local cop. It's always about money, but whose is at stake and how cheap is Rhodes's life? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

My brief review of the film
26 December 2005 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Some intriguing introductory sequences keep this thriller mildly interesting, but it is pretty conventional film-making overall, with a cheap, B-grade telepic feel to the material, which is enhanced by some poor music application. There are some parts of the film that are well shot and edited smartly, but the technical side does not enliven the film very much. The politics are drone and the film drags between the action sequences that are not that exciting in the first place. It provides some insight into relations between different nations, and a few other things, but nothing worth really praising. The film will be of interest to fans of James Spader, Clifton Collins Jr., or any of the other supporting actors, but I would be cautious to recommend it to anyone else.
