I accidentally stumbled across this flick while i was renting a couple of movies. At first i decided to pass it but after seeing swayze's name on the cover i thought to myself that it would be fun to see him in an action movie again. Having the warm memory of roadhouse in the back of my mind i snatched it. Well to be honest it wasn't that bad of a b-movie (mini series?) and it also wasn't that good. It basically is about a chemical terrorist hit in Russia and Swayze is brought from retirement to solve it. It at least seemed they filmed the movie in Russia which they probably did since i live next door to the country and I'd say it was pretty authentic. Nicely done there. The cast did a fine job considering what they were given to work with. Action scenes with swayze were as good as the movie got. Nice to see that he's still in good shape and able to nicely outperform most of the old-timers in Hollywood. The man's in his mid-fifties. If you like Patrick Swayze go rent this. If not, then i recommend not to bother just for the movie.
