Trivia

Don 'The Dragon' Wilson was originally cast to star in the role of Ray Liotta. Wilson's role was entirely rewritten for Liotta, eliminating any martial arts content. Wilson cites losing the role as part of the reason for his five year hiatus from filmmaking. See more »

Quotes

Javier Salazar: The Americans,they are very smart,but sometimes they can be incredibly stupid.They spend all this money,time and energy on so called war on terror.They put satellites up in space.They can ram a smart-bomb up a camel's ass... from a situation 5 thousand miles away.and every time the U.S kills an Al Qaeda leader,what happens? There's a new one before the body is cold.They do it a million times,and never get it... Because the real solution,always eludes them.

Rotten Movie.
26 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie is supposed to symbolize something. I couldn't figure what that was. A very confusing story line, disjointed story telling and some incomprehensible characters makes it a insomniacs delight.

Ray Liotta is a sniper, who has killed a lady by mistake in the past. Image of that lady haunts him. We are never told who he was actually trying to kill or who that lady was with sentances like "No one really cared"!! Perhaps the script writer and director didn't!

There were too many questions at the end of the movie. Why does the God father go along with this plan? Why he wants his step-son dead? Why the US secret agency doesn't just kill the Afghans?

I fell asleep within half an hour! Highly advice you to skip this.
