Goofs

In the scene where Wayne Barclay has just had the second attempt on his life at his girlfriend Lydia's apartment, just as he's leaving, he has his arm around Lydia in the medium shots and is only holding her hand in the long shots. The arm position becomes noticeable because it cuts back and forth between medium and long shots a couple of times. See more »

A step above generic and a LOT better than Second In Command
25 August 2006 | by (morris plains nj) – See all my reviews

The plot is simple, a soldier returning from Afhganistan becomes a body guard for a well known boxer who is loved by the community he restored, and hated by the man he put behind bars.

It begins typically with plot development and whatnot but where other straight to video movies fail this one succeeds, if you give the movie a chance you will feel the difference between this and anything else that has been released recently. The plot has more to it, the action pieces deliver what is expected but it is entertaining none the less and the humor and rap beats thrown in add what is needed to make this movie more entertaining than what i was expecting. treat yourself and get a hold of this for lazy nights where you just want to kick back and see Jean Claude do his best.
