Louis Gossett Jr.,
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
This will be a lame review . Just as lame as the movie itself . The only good think I can say about "Icarus" is that the opening credits are cool . And that we have 3 sexy ladies in it. That's it.
Lundgren can give a watchable performance , but here he is just goddamn awful . He acts like he barely can speak English . It's strange , because he's a well educated man , so I know that's not the reason . So what ? Maybe it's the lack of charisma or any idea for how to play his character ?
I rally don't know what to write about this movie . It's boring . Action scenes are dull . The dialogue is pretty bad . The story is thin. The acting is unimpressive. The whole pseudo-deep ramblings about choices we make are rather shallow. And what's with the cliffhanger ending?
Better watch "The Professional" with Jean Reno . I give it 1/10.
