Cuba Gooding Jr.,
Mike Riggins, an imprisoned ex-US Special forces operative in Eastern Europe, is offered his freedom and money to rescue an American woman, Ana Gale, who has been kidnapped by a ruthless warlord. But, shortly after freeing her, Mike discovers that the kidnap story was just a ruse to bring Ana out into the open. Our hero suddenly finds himself and his charge being hunted by ruthless government, para-military, and underworld organizations - all who want him dead and Ana under their control. With no one to turn to, and the enemies closing in, Mike must uncover the truth about Ana and bring her to the safety of the U.S. Embassy. Written by
Fun for Dolph fans and other action movie buffs...
This is no way to start a friendship... Dolph Lundgren
I saw the movie last night and i have to say that i enjoyed it. It was way better than Diamond Dogs,Retrograde and many others. It had nearly every thing an action movie must contain. Hand to hand combat, Kicks, Guns, Dead bodies, Car Chases, Explosions and even a guy blowing up.
I liked seeing loads of means of transportations that were used in the movie. Dolph was seen in a Motor Bike, Many cars, Army truck, Bus, Train, Double Cabin Car, Farm Truck & even a Limousine in the end. The villains used Army Trucks, Army Jeeps, Helecopters, Double Cabin Cars and even a God damn Tank...
The cheap budget showed but still the movie looked good and it would have been hell of a lot better if it had a larger budget. Dolph gave quite a good performance and looked cool in action scenes showing many punches and kicks. I enjoyed the supporting cast as well. Gina May was an okay helpless girl but Michael Pare was a cool villain and so was Bashar Rahil (Too bad a fight between him and Dolph was skipped, I think he was also in Bridge Of Dragons) Michael Pares Death scene was the Koolest.
Overall the movie is very good for a Dolph fan and other action movie buffs. They are the target audience and they wont be left unsatisfied. Its a very good start for 2009. Followed by CP, US3, Icarus and The Expendables, I believe an exciting future lies ahead for Dolph and DL fans like us...
