Jean Claude plays an official who's just been appointed as Second In Command to the U.S.Ambassador at an American Embassy in a small, turbulent Eastern European nation. When local insurgents attempt a coup d'etat, the nation's President takes refuge inside the embassy. The embassy is then besieged by the well-armed insurgents. The U.S. Ambassador is killed in the ensuing action, and it's now up to Jean-Claude and the embassy's small detachment of U.S. Marines to fend off the attackers. Written by
The action is placed in Moldova, but it was filmed in Bucharest, Romania. It is easily to see auto numbers on ordinary cars which are from Bucharest, not from Chisinau, the capital of Moldova. Not even one car has Moldavian numbers. Another goof is people's accent. None of them has Moldavian accent, which, for a native Romanian, is as obvious as one can distinguish between a penguin and a seagull. See more »
Van Damme helped by a group of Marines battle against rebels communists in a far country
Jean-Claude Van Damme as one army man is an US commander assigned as second in command to the American Embassy in an Eastern European country called Moldavia.Then,communists rebels try a coup state.The official gets free the President and they take shelter into US Embassy nearly deserted that encounters itself under siege by violent insurgents.Meanwhile Van Damme saves the damsel in disgrace,an enticing journalist(Julie Cox) and he along with a detachment of soldiers fight against nasties attackers which have surrounded the siege.
The picture packs noisy action,shoot-outs explosions,politics intrigues and minimum characterization.It's exciting and tense ,at time lackluster action film,but the blown up,struggles,gun-play are well done in this routine actioner.The story is plenty of firepower,action packed,fights though is added an interesting politic suspense.Jean Claude Van Damme is fine as action hero in this middling budget film.Long time ago he played big budget movies(Time cop,Universal soldier,,Double team,Hard target),nowadays he makes low budget and directly to video(Derailed,Wake of death,In hell)like in his first films(Black eagle,Cyborg,Bloodsport).The film is well photographed by Douglas Milsone(Dungeons and dragons,Sunchaser,Body of evidence)in natural scenarios of Rumania though the coup détat is happened in Moldavia(ex-Republic of Russia).The motion picture is correctly directed by Simon Fellows who directed a Wesley Snipes vehicle(7 seconds)and he recently directed ¨Until death¨again with Jean Claude Van Damme. The film will like to action genre enthusiastic.Pointlessly energetic and occasionally fun for only the true devotee of main actor.It's a must see for Van Damme fans.
