They find the plane and get the thing but some men take one of Barney's people hostage and the leader tells him to give him what they got or he'll kill his hostage.

Barney decides to track the man down and deal with him. They track them down and discover that the man they seek is Vilain who leads a group known as The Sangs and that they have taken all the men from the surrounding villages to work the mine.Written by

Like the first one i wasn't expecting mind blowing dialogue, but it still gives you the greatest action stars to graced our screens in one movie. I really enjoyed the film for its entertainment value but it was pretty crap. I would also like to give an acknowledgement to the muscles from Brussels JCVD as I feel he stole the limelight as his acting and character shone out of the bunch.
this may have been because he was the baddie and had a meatier role. But then again none of these boys are really renowned for there acting skills.
