When Griffith fights Pavel, (portrayed by Bogdan Uritescu) he disarms Griffith before being overpowered. Griffith smashes Pavel's head once into a sink, and then into a mirror. This causes Pavel's forehead and nose to bleed, as we see in the next shot where Griffith has Pavel in a choke hold. However, when Griffith kills Pavel by snapping his neck, there is no blood on Pavel's face. See more »
OK, it's a straight-to-DVD action film, and it shows. The editing is poor, the storyline is not incredibly compelling, the action sequences are just "ok". But it did't fail to keep me entertained. The on screen chemistry between Snipes and the lead actress Silvia Colloca brings a bit of fun and wit in the story. I have to say the scenes between those two are my favourites. The girl has a real attitude and it's quite cool to her confronting Snipes's cool temper. In fact, Silvia Colloca graduates from a bit role In Van Helsing and shows she can act and she has the asset of a good leading lady. And she looks stunning, by the way... Snipes is fun to watch as usual and his action sequences show of his talent. I struggled a bit with the supporting cast and their accents. Most of them sounded Russian to me, as opposed to Romanian. But maybe I'am being picky.
6/10 rent it if you want some non-intellectual entertainment.
