Storyline

Carson Empman, a famed contract killer, takes vengeance on a powerful drug cartel after his lover is murdered. Known as 'The Ghost', Carson makes a fine living being anonymously hired to take out individuals who need to disappear. His life changes forever when the Chutro drug cartel offers him enough money to not only meet in person, but to join a team to assassinate a Californian mayor who is no longer cooperating. During the planning stage at a cartel-owned winery, Carson is seduced by the beguiling Clarissa, who wishes to tempt Carson into fleeing the killer-for-hire business with her. Carson refuses, never to see Clarissa again, and learns not long after the assassination that she was tortured and killed. To seek vengeance, Carson retreats to a remote cabin to systematically bring down the cartel by exposing their vast financial operations, knowing full well that by doing so, he will be tracked down and forced to endure the most agonizing of deaths. He gives himself just one week ... Written by johnsonism

Typographical error in "The Sacramento Times". The headline reads, "Remains of Missing DEA Deputy's Possibly Located". It should read either Deputy or Deputies. Not "Deputy's", meaning something that belonged to the Deputy. See more »

I really wanted to like this movie, but in the end it gets bogged down by too many flashbacks ~ cutting back and forth that leaves many unexplained gaps int he story. Also, the writing could be better and the actors get a little too hammy in playing stereotypes. Move along, nothing much to see here folks...
