A drug industry has gained a huge popularity in the United States and Eastern Europe. In response, FSB has been organizing underground operations to infiltrate the most notorious drug gangs in that region. Meanwhile, a huge drug operation is being led by a mysterious crime group in Russia. Two special agents try to investigate, but one of them has his family taken hostages by the mob and is being blackmailed. All the suspicions lead to the international drug cartel led by an American crime boss and a former U.S. Special Forces member. Written by Anonymous

If you need to get angry about wasting your time - watch this movie
29 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I agree with sb-38 completely I voted 3, but it was a very hard thing to do, because this movie sucks. When they advertised it on TV they said it was a quote "super action movie" those are the exact words. They put so much visual "effects" (lighting, color enhancement, etc.) in it that it is hard to watch, the idea of the movie is old, the story sucks, it is very hard to follow the movie, the scenes change for no reason and they are almost not connected, the dialogs are stupid and corny, the jokes are flat, events in the scenes are expected, action scenes suck, the main "thing" of the movie is fast forward in the scenes and then normal speed/looking from different angles and "unexpected places"/lighting effects. And in the end I would like to say that new Russian movies (including this one) copy American movies and even steal ideas and effects and the thing that I hate the most is that they say that American movies suck and then copy them and say that it is a unique movie. So if you need to get angry about wasting your time - watch this movie.
