Storyline

There were those who called him Icarus. Everyone else knew him as a divorced father working for an investment company. But they didn't know his other side-his dark side. Because Icarus was at his best when he was killing people. For years, he'd worked as a sleeper agent in America-but when the Soviet Empire collapsed, he found himself in a foreign country with no one to trust. Determined to break from his dark past, he started over with a new identity. But you can only escape your past for so long. When a sudden mishap in Hong Kong blows Icarus' identity, past and present collide - and the assassin realizes he is now the target. The people that want him dead will stop at nothing to get to him. And that means going after what he cares about most-his wife and daughter. Fighting for his life, Icarus is forced to face the demons of his past to protect the loved ones in his present. He must fight to save the only thing he's ever done right in his life. He needs to uncover who is after him ... Written by Anonymous

"Give him the direction of a movie and he will make a good film, give him a big budget and he will make Citizen Kane !"
21 November 2010 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

First, i just don't understand the negative comments here, everyone thinks that this is a "True Lies" rip-off, there is only ONE element that resemble True lies (the family man with the double life), i don't understand people that says "boooooooooooring", or "it's not a kill fest, watch the trailer if you want a kill fest"...hum....did we watched the same movie ? Icarus features well executed and well done action scenes, with violent and bloody action.

Dolph gives a good and strong performance.

Dolph Lundgren shows that he is good at directing, someone should give a big budget, he reached the same league as Sylvester Stallone, both starring and directing some of their films.
