A little more drama then you may expect.....
15 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Most Van Damme fans will be turned off by this movie. It's a lot more dramatic than your average action flick. Or rather, it tries to be. You have one character that is emotionally shut off, and has no human connection (Van Damme) and you have a killer with a heart who is caring for his comatose wife. (Adkins) Wow, they're so deep...... yeah, but what we really want to see is both these actors breaking bad guys faces. Which they do... only too infrequently in this flick.

Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this movie. I love every Van Damme movie. It just doesn't deliver the straight action you'd expect. You have to sit through some forced plot first.
