Job done, the employer proposes another contract to Curtie to kill the lord of the traffickers that had addicted, prostituted and murdered his daughter. Curtie seeks out the Englishman Jimmy that is an arm dealer and he rents heavy weapons. Then Curtie provokes a war between gangs to eliminate the greatest number of white slave traders. Meanwhile, the young prostitute Mae meets Church and helps him to release other girls. When Mae vanishes, Curtie seeks her out and finds the truth about Mae.

When Curtie is talking to Mae, he pulls out a bag of .50 caliber rifle bullets and starts sharpening the tips of them with a file. While that looks very sinister, it is something a serious shooter would never do. A hand filed tip on a bullet could dramatically alter the flight path and make it highly inaccurate. A filed down bullet would also have a negative impact on the air pressure over the projectile and would compromise the expansion and/or overall penetration. It looked very cool, but a pro would never do that. See more »

Waste of time!
2 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I had the chance to see this movie and all I can say is that it was 90 minutes of my life that I wont get back.I had been looking forward to this, being that it was the English language debut of the guy(whose name is to long to spell out) who brought us ong bak & the protector. Dijamon Honsou was miscast, Kevin bacon did it for the paycheck and the movie as a whole just really didn't make sense and was boring. Bad direction, Weak plot, bad acting (Kevin Bacon's accent=horrible)The action scenes tried hard to look cool and stylish but just fail. To sum things up, I can see why this movie is headed straight to DVD & Blu-ray!
