On the eve of the elections in Russia, there's an outbreak of a mysterious disease. The British are curious to find out what's going on, so they need to send someone. An official knows someone, Jason Monk, an American Agent who worked deep cover in Russia during the Cold War. He approaches Monk, who initially refuses till he tells Monk that he can help him settle some old scores and to see his daughter whom he left when he was pulled out. So Monk goes and makes contact with an old friend and a Russian policewoman. They learn that someone is trying to manipulate the election. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

The movie didn't kick ass, Swayze did!
8 July 2006 | by muumilapsusSee all my reviews

I accidentally stumbled across this flick while i was renting a couple of movies. At first i decided to pass it but after seeing swayze's name on the cover i thought to myself that it would be fun to see him in an action movie again. Having the warm memory of roadhouse in the back of my mind i snatched it. Well to be honest it wasn't that bad of a b-movie (mini series?) and it also wasn't that good. It basically is about a chemical terrorist hit in Russia and Swayze is brought from retirement to solve it. It at least seemed they filmed the movie in Russia which they probably did since i live next door to the country and I'd say it was pretty authentic. Nicely done there. The cast did a fine job considering what they were given to work with. Action scenes with swayze were as good as the movie got. Nice to see that he's still in good shape and able to nicely outperform most of the old-timers in Hollywood. The man's in his mid-fifties. If you like Patrick Swayze go rent this. If not, then i recommend not to bother just for the movie.
