Goofs

When the ICE officer in disguise checks in at the airport you can clearly see on the monitor of the customs officer that it is written Chisinau. Chisinau is the capital of Moldavia, a country near Russia, when in fact it is said that she comes from Moscow, Russia having demanded a Russian email address. See more »

Quotes

Customs Agent Bill Meehan: [addressing a news conference on TV] An ounce of cocaine, wholesale...
Kate Morozov: [to Mischa, as they watch the news report on TV] That's my boss.
Customs Agent Bill Meehan: $1200. But you can only sell it once. A woman, or a child, $50 to $1000, but you can sell them each day, every day, over and over and over again. The markup is immeasurable. Human trafficking, ladies and gentlemen, is the business of the future for crime organization.

A hard to watch, non-exploitive look at an international shame
26 October 2005 | by sdod2See all my reviews

I found the movie very compelling as it followed several different story lines, exposing many different facets to the sex trafficking industry. The fact that all these story lines were linked to one king pin running an international organization was pure Hollywood, but it allowed for drama and suspense as he was tracked by the feds. The wrap up and conclusion was also too easy, but again the mission of this film was to educate and spotlight abuse in an entertaining forum. This movie delivered.

On top of this, I especially appreciated the way the graphic scenes were composed. It was hard to watch, ugly, and grotesque. It wasn't played for sex appeal, or lurid fascination. It was ugly. Completely appropriate to the reality of the women, children, and victims of this abuse.
