Mikhail Suverov: [Tape recording] Only you can access this box. Therefore, one of things has happened. We are together again as we should had been, a family. Or I'm dead and you shouldn't trust anyone. I know you are a great marksman. Therefore, I'm leaving you a gift. One of the boxes contains evidence against government agents and the Russian mob.

one of the best action movies
25 September 2010 | by jimakrosSee all my reviews

This movie stars Van Damme who has been in many B-movies and is known as a b-movie action star.I believe thats why this movie gets this low rating. This movie is an a-movie and one of the best action movies and one of my favorites.The rating is simply ridiculous.Van Damme may not be a first rate actor but can he hold his own in this kind of material.Everything else in this movie is first rate.The plot is interesting,there are all kinds of chases and action scenes,All the action scenes are terrific and there's plenty of them.The bad guy is one impressive dude,makes for some really awesome wrestling scenes with Van Damme. The girl is the gorgeous Natasha Henstridge.In my book this is one fine action movie.
