Trivia

The film is infamous for Steven Seagal not being involved in any of the fight scenes due to his leaving the film 18 days into a 30-day shoot. The director shot fights with stunt doubles and scenes that were to involve Seagal were replaced by his co-star in the film. See more »

Goofs

When paying for the physical nuclear device with diamonds, the European-terrorists say that they will give the American thugs a key to a safe deposit box with the rest of the diamonds after they get the plutonium. More than just a key is needed to get into a safe deposit box, you have to show ID and your signature must match the Signature Card for the box. The only other way is with a court order to open the box. See more »

Quotes

Jonathan Cold: You see, in this business... the keys to the kingdom is weapons-grade plutonium. If you ain't got that, you ain't got shit.

Not Bad for a "B" (direct to Video)
3 January 2006 | by (Anaheim, California) – See all my reviews

Despite some awful editing, missteps in plot, obvious fluff scenes, this is actually not a "bad" movie. What makes it uncomfortable to watch is the now aging and overweight Seagal unable to do *any* of his own stunts! The terrorists are hopeless zealots but not unbelievably so. The CIA stuff is trite but not untenably unrealistic. The cast does what they can to keep the plot moving along...and it's usually enough. Seagal's dialog (in breathy monotone) is what too often slows down the action. Timothy Carhart is perfectly cast as the female agent's supervisor: he's the *real* question-mark re good guy vs bad guy. But then most of the actors turn in credible performances. Unlike some "B" movies I didn't feel the need to turn this one off halfway thru.
