A wealthy, retired crime boss, Virgil. He shares a past with the Russian Woman and her betrayal breaks his heart. Furious and paranoid, Virgil cannot trust even his closest associates. So, he enlists a crooked homicide detective, Beck, to track her down before the police get to her.Written by

Everyone. Kill everyone. That's what he taught me. No time for doubts, no time for hesitation, no time for feelings, no time for friends, no time for family. The only way you can make sure you won't be betrayed, is to kill everyone around you. "Everyone must die," he said. "Everyone."

Here's a bad female assassin film attempting to be a cross between le femme nikita and the godfather; both far superior movies.
A Russian woman(Stana Katic who is actually Croatian and Serbian) as a deadly girl seeking revenge for her sisters' gang rape by a bunch of neo-Nazis somehow tied in with a Greek mafioso type played by veteran actor Tom Berenger in a Brando like Don Corleone lite. what's missing is Coppola and every other aspect of the great Godfather and of course the awesome Marlon Brando.
Every gangster cliché is used here from missing money to torture scenes and rival Mexican bad guys in night club shoot out that borders on the ridiculous. I'll give it a 5 as a very average crime- drama with decent acting and a by the numbers script.
