But the group has to get through a secret agent, who happens to be a martial arts specialist, who will do whatever it takes to defend Algeria, as well as destroy this scheming organization.

A cheap scenario and a cheap production
1 November 2015 | by (Athens) – See all my reviews

A lot of cheap (computer made) special effects. (flares of guns,smoke,blood etc). Poor scenario and a lot o f unnecessary killings just for killing. Its like a TV movie. Very poor casting Has a fast rhythm in all the scenes and that is not useful and it'a disturbing for viewer. Also has a lot disturbing for the eye transitions between the plans Its not worth 90 minutes from my time.And to complete this narrative massacre beauty, what better than a set illiterate powerfully scene, designed by a director who has absolutely no concept of the frame, cutting and scenography? Once the generic, one hallucinates: mounting between taurine in which chains gratuitously beating shutters and strobe flashes, Minéo seems to take to the new Tony Scott, but without the experimental work on the long lens that was of "Man on Fire" and "Domino" real nuggets graphics
