Storyline

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 anonymous

Crappy movie
23 March 2009 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Poor acting, poor visual effects. fighting in every scene, week story line. in one scene he steals a Kawasaki ninja motor bike and when he is driving it at about 20km per hour with people walking in back ground, they speed the film up so it looks fast and other cars move at a stupid speed, cuts to a side shot of the bike and it says Yamaha on the engine, how did he change bikes from a Kawasaki to a Yamaha while he was riding it? their is some good scenes in this though, and the main actor is almost a good actor, almost their. He kinda reminds me of a early Arnold Schwarzenegger. anyway don't pay to watch it. unless you like goofs.
