When ex-soldier turned mercenary, John Gold, learns of the murder of his best friend, he sets off on a mission to find out what happened. What he discovers is a sinister conspiracy and he sets about taking down those responsible one by one.
I started watching with no real hope for this film. While it is not the best movie out there by a long shot, it kept me entertained for the evening. The action is a bit slow in places, but it is still worth the wait.
The characters are, perhaps, somwhat clichéd - the rookie EMT, the sour veteran EMT and an injured super-hero - but this doesn't detract from the telling of the story.
The SFX and prosthetics were well realised and nothing was glaringly out of place within the storyline. Indeed, the entire movie requires little effort to enable the suspension of disbelief, and nothing in the presentation really damages that.
Sadly, the scene at the end, while opening the way for a sequel, has virtually no explanation - it just IS.
