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

A cult classic
12 May 2009 | by (Connecticut, USA) – See all my reviews

I posted this in the boards for this film, but I thought I would add a review here also.

This film is amazing. So many mistakes in continuity, terrible writing(or is it?), yet so appealing and funny because of this. Not to mention the action scenes are just awesome. There's so much going on here that's so wrong, it makes it right.

This film reminds me of what directors like Tarantino are going after when he made Deathproof/Grindhouse films, only his were done on purpose. This film was not. It was just filmed and put together this way.

It may be hard for many to swallow, but there is real entertainment to be had here. The key is to watch how the actors respond to the scenes and dialog. The action stands on it's own, and the ride is never slow, so just sit back and watch the show!
