Killing time
10 November 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Porky Steven Seagal plays some ace special ops interrogator of Major Jensen (Luke Goss) after a mission goes wrong. Their target Salazar, a notorious drug lord has escaped as he was due to be the main witness in a trial against various cartels. The hotel they were holed up in came under attack by a hit squad after Salazar.

The story is told in flashbacks as the Major is the only person to get out alive and Seagal wants to be sure that the Major tells him everything and is clean.

This is a derivative straight to video action thriller with a not a lot of action. Just a lot of sitting down and talking to Seagal, there are some really bad lines from Seagal. There is some decent action from Georges St-Pierre who plays the henchman. However this is a boring and bad film.
