After an illustrious special ops career ends in disaster, Alexander (Seagal) goes off the grid and attempts to lead a quiet life as a handyman at an apartment complex in Romania. But when one of his tenants and her family fall under the thumb of a local gangster, Alexander is dragged into an all-out war between rival Chinese and Russian gangs; forcing him to not only defend the family, but bringing him face to face with an old foe, and giving him one more chance to reconcile his past.

User Reviews

Second film of the John Alexander trilogy is a competent vigilante actioner
21 September 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

An American action thriller; Steven Seagal plays John Alexander, a former U.S. Special Operations soldier who lives off-the grid in Eastern Europe after a covert operation ends in disaster. This film is a prequel to "Force of Execution" which starred Ving Rhames and Danny Trejo, and a background story to Alexander's life as a gangster in New Mexico. Although this is a straightforward story about vigilantism, it develops the character motives succinctly and the pacing is good. The first installment had Alexander as a dark character without any redeeming qualities at all which involved a thug fest of barbaric reprisals. In this film the plot is adequate and the prologue sequences set the tone and provide meaning later in the story. It hovers between toneless story and adequate action and gritty drama, and there's a plenty of well choreographed fighting. The final scenes raise it just a notch.
