A disgraced black ops agent is dispatched to a remote CIA broadcast station to protect a code operator. Soon, they find themselves in a life-or-death struggle to stop a deadly plot before it's too late.
A desperate American couple discovers all is not what it seems when they uncover a high-stakes underground scam while traveling abroad. To expose the truth and get back to the U.S., they must risk their lives to save their daughter.
A corporation hires a professional assassin to pose as its trade show representative who must organize the wedding of a Middle Eastern pop star, which will allow him the opportunity to kill a Middle Eastern politician.
An ex-CIA agent and his estranged daughter are forced on the run when his employers erase all records of his existence, and mark them both for termination as part of a wide-reaching international conspiracy.
When the moral values of a longtime wetwork black ops agent is tested during his last operation, he receives an unfavorable psych evaluation. Now he is given a break and a seemingly uncomplicated assignment of simply protecting the security of a young female code announcer, code resources and remote station they are assigned to. After an ambush and one phone call later, it becomes a complicated fight for their survival.Written by
A movie I found slow and really hard to get into. Just a step above a made-for-TV movie. Do not expect action. I say C.
"You keep the station safe, the code safe, whatever it takes." After Emerson (Cusack) has a problem during a routine assignment he is reassigned to a safe house type area making sure secret codes are transmitted out to the government properly. When the boring routine job becomes infiltrated it is up to him and his new partner to protect the house. I have said this the last few Cusack movies but I think I need to say it again...does he need help? The movies he is picking are really just a step above made-for-TV and I wonder why. The idea for this movie is a neat idea but the overall execution of it is a little slow and really hard to get into. I tried hard to get into it but for me it was a struggle and I lost interest pretty quick. The end I will admit was OK but getting to that point almost didn't seem worth it. Even though it may not sound like it but I have seen worse lately but don't expect a full on action movie from this. Overall, slow and hard to get into, a movie I think Cusack did for money. I give it a C.
