Storyline

Toxic waste bubbles in a ship waiting permission to dock in Odessa. Frank Martin turns down a job in Marseilles, referring it to a pal. A short time later, the pal, wounded by gunfire, crashes his car into Frank's living room and dies, leaving a young woman in the back seat. The employer of the dead man shows up, forces Frank to take the job, snaps a bracelet on his wrist that will explode if Frank gets more than 75 feet from his car, and sends Frank on a journey east with the young woman and a trunk full of something. She's Valentina, nearly mute. Can Frank figure out what's going on, deliver the package, and escape alive? And what does the ship have to do with it? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The Mercedes in the chase scene is an W211 E-class E500 preface lift with Mercedes V8 engine with 306HP and Elegance package which is why car doesn't have tailpipes. If you listen carefully right after the scene where the Mercedes passes two trucks, you can hear the roar of V8. See more »

Goofs

There is simply not enough air in the car tyres for the flotation trick to work. To support a 1500kg car at the surface would require each bag to take 375kg which (roughly) in fresh water at atmospheric pressure would require each to displace 0.375 cubic meters. At 2.5 bar pressure (pretty standard for a high performance car tyre) this would take up 0.64 cubic meters which, on a 17" wheel at 205 profile would require the tyre height to be 215mm (even if it were possible to get all the air out of the tyre, which it wouldn't as the air would stop coming out when the inside of the tyre was the same pressure as the outside).

Quotes

Valentina: Do you ever kiss like you mean it Frank? I'm thinking may be nice. I'm thinking you live alone. Inside and outside. I think it's not dying you're afraid of, it's a living. Live with me. just this once, just this moment, live with me...

Entertaining Action Movie
21 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do not fully understand why this film has been so severely slated. As far as action films go it ticked all the boxes, plenty of guns, car stunts, good fights, romance and even some corny humour, and has a happy ending .........what do people expect ..........Sir Laurence Olivier doing bloody Hamlet?

If you have had a crap day at work, and want to watch a good action movie which is not demanding then this is very good "action" film, if you require something demanding then watch a good foreign film.

I had as much fun watching this as I do watching a James Bond or Jackie Chan film. 8/10
