Storyline

Chicago DEA agent John Hatcher has just returned from Colombia, where his partner was killed in the line of duty by a drug dealer who has since been taken down. As a result of his partner's death, John has decided to retire, but his retirement may not be permanent. On the next day, after reuniting with his sister Melissa and Melissa's daughter Tracy, John gets into a shootout against a Jamaican drug kingpin known as Screwface, taking down some of Screwface's men. John brings himself out of retirement when Screwface retaliates by attempting to kill Melissa and Tracy. After the shooting, John is reunited with two old friends - a local high school football coach named Max, and a Jamaican Chicago cop named Charles. John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica. John and Max take Charles with them to Jamaica for an all out war against Screwface and his drug empire. Written by Todd Baldridge <sandib@eastky.com>

Crazy Credits

The posse phenomenon is estimated to be a fraction of one percent of the Jamaican population and should not detract from their country or the contributions Jamaicans have made to this country. See more »

one of seagal's best
17 May 2010 | by thebobo1See all my reviews

only problem I had with this movie is with the over-dramatic ending fight scene.. Seagal should have kicked the guy's ass and "THE END". Instead, it was overdone just a bit. A lot of seagal's aikido is on display in this movie which I really like. and , once again he's wearing the same puffy black jacket as he did in his other earlier movies to cover up his gut..(but who really cares about that anyway.)

A shame his career/life took such a dramatic turn for the worse. He could have been known as one of the great martial artists in history.

well, I don't have 10 lines yet so I can't post this review so I will just write this so it will give me ten lines. I have nothing more to say about the movie.
