Lets say you were bored on a Friday night at home and you decided to rent a movie..Lets say the movie store was renting movies for 20 cents each..Lets say you had watched Blade and thought Wesley Snipes was a great actor...After all that, I'd advice you not to rent or watch this movie.

Wesley's dialogue is horrible. He needs a new acting coach and his fight scenes aren't that great either. Heck I've seen better fight scenes being done by Chris Tucker and he ain't some black belt martial artist. The whole plot of this movie is based around an ex-"super-agent" that has been forced out of retirement to fight some bad guys. Simple enough plot line that gets overworked with mindless plot twists that frankly, don't seem to make sense in the end. Plus whoever was in charge of dressing Wesley, pretty much ridiculed every fight scene by dressing him up in a jacket, blazer or coat.

But hey, if you're a fan of terrible acting, sub-par plot lines and just want to waste your life, then be my guest and watch this movie.
