User Reviews

 
Mystery at least grips this action drama
27 September 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

U.S. Marshal Luke Goss and his team are flown to Romania. Their orders: guard a billionaire Russian drug kingpin called Salazar who has turned informer. But, his underboss, Sinclaire, intends to murder him. The mystery is how Sinclaire has located Salazar. Steven Seagal, as Agent Harrison, will stop at nothing to root out the mole who compromised his operation. Keoni Waxman directs this explosive thriller and handles the action sequences with reasonable proficiency. Waxman has become the go-to man for Seagal who has improved the quality of his films in recent years. However, Seagal gives a mostly subdued supporting performance and cuts a tired figure at times. All in all, a passably entertaining action film but the script is marred by its over-use of profanities.
