Storyline

In 1972, the conflict in Vietnam continues. The creeping threat of communism grips the nation in fear. In an abandoned prison on the US/Mexican border, KGB mole Nikolai Dzerzhinsky waits for his contact from the Washington Post. He holds explosive evidence against the CIA, information he will trade for asylum in the United States. Special Agent Robert Harper's orders are clear: take the documents from Dzerzhinsky and kill him. Written by Justin Evans

An action film that can appeal to all
5 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not just your regular action movie. There's more behind the guns and fighting than the usual "shoot em up" action flick. The story line is actually well thought out rather than an excuse for more shooting and gore. Great for those looking for action, story twists, chemistry between the main characters, and a story line to bring it all together.

Some great names that I've never heard of before. Ross Marquand and Michael Scovotti were fantastic. Loved their chemistry on screen. Hope to see them in more movies in the future.

The directing was very well done. Truly blown away that this movie was made on a small budget. Great quality and very well written.

Very likely to keep most audiences interested through the whole film.
