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

Why?
1 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of Doph, but this movie was lame. It did have cool explosions and stunts, but thats it. The story is similar to The Russian Specialist, which in my opinion is far better. One thing I've come to appreciate from Danny Lerner's movies is the fact that a lot of stuff gets blown up. In my book that is a plus. In this movie the fights did not look too convincing. The Russian dude in the beginning of the film in the jail, gets his ass kicked by Dolph within the first few seconds and he just sat there and took it. I've seen the same Rusian dude in other films and he kicks ass. Dolph looks in great shape, but his moves appear slow as if the editing or choreograph was not all there. But then again, I'm not a movie maker. Dolph has been in somewhat of a slump with films like Diamond Dogs, Missionary Man, Direct Action and now this. I think the films he's directed himself are far better...
