Storyline

In Bangkok, the assassin Curtie Church (Djimon Hounsou) is hired by a businessman to kill six men. Job done, the employer proposes another contract to Curtie to kill the lord of the traffickers that had addicted, prostituted and murdered his daughter. Curtie seeks out the Englishman Jimmy that is an arm dealer and he rents heavy weapons. Then Curtie provokes a war between gangs to eliminate the greatest number of white slave traders. Meanwhile, the young prostitute Mae meets Church and helps him to release other girls. When Mae vanishes, Curtie seeks her out and finds the truth about Mae. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

When Curtie is talking to Mae, he pulls out a bag of .50 caliber rifle bullets and starts sharpening the tips of them with a file. While that looks very sinister, it is something a serious shooter would never do. A hand filed tip on a bullet could dramatically alter the flight path and make it highly inaccurate. A filed down bullet would also have a negative impact on the air pressure over the projectile and would compromise the expansion and/or overall penetration. It looked very cool, but a pro would never do that. See more »

If you can look past certain things you might enjoy this movie.
18 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Was this the best movie I have ever seen? Absolutely not. Was it the worst movie I have ever seen? No again. This movie served one purpose, to showcase a martial arts, action and explosions. And to that effect, I think it hit its mark. I do have to say that the award for worst accent of 2010 goes to Kevin Bacon, but all in all I was entertained with the movie and have seen far more futile attempts in the past. I think the premise of the movie has entertaining, though done before. If you have the time to kill, I say give it a watch, but don't go sleepless at night because you haven't seen it yet. I say a solid 5 out of 10.
