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

what a mess
13 December 2008 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

First and foremost, this is a movie with no sense at all. It's just a two-hour video about nothing. Just video clips about big time criminals that no one knows where does each scenario follow.

Second, the team-up between the two leads is boring. There's no action between the two guys. The antagonists are lame too. The leads are lame. The cop's wife and daughter are lame. The other cops are lame. Everyone's lame! Even the doctor is lame! Third, if the characters are lame, then the script should be lame too! Actually, it's the script that I like the most, even if it's not so good. The bastard cop is just corny and and I can't help but laugh. Other than that, nothing.

Lastly, the ending. I really don't understand this crap. We have seen drug trafficking, lame mafia bosses, the cop's suicidal family drama, a porn magazine and a scene involving an ugly crack head throwing his sissy hos in a pool... and then we see an Asian guy meditating and some ancient philosophical quote appeared in the ending that has something to do with life but has little to do with everything. What's with that? What is this film really about? Nothing! I don't know if the director was a film school kick-out, but I'm so sure this is so amateur film-making. Even a 13-year old film geek can make a better action film than this one.
