Storyline

With his reliability in tatters after the audacious theft of a priceless Van Gogh painting while under his supervision, the down-on-his-luck private security agent, Danny Stratton, has been given a shot at redemption. Now, along with his partners, brawny, Mach Ren, no-nonsense, J.Jae An, and tech-savvy, Ding Dong, the members of the Security Management Action Recovery Team, Danny will have to transport a rare ancient Chinese vase out of Shanghai, all the way to London. However, history repeats itself, and once again, Danny's old nemesis, the villainous art-thief, Long Fei, and his murderous henchmen ambush the team. Can Danny protect those he loves, retrieve the precious artefact, and in the process, restore his damaged reputation? Written by Nick Riganas

C-grade production with B-list bleached blonde Bloom in a film that wasn't SMART
2 September 2018 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

This has Made in China all over it. From the loud and annoying cheesy score, action scenes, writing and acting. The only thing decent in the film was the beautiful scenery and the adequate directing. I couldn't get past Blooms' cheeseball bleached blonde hair that made him look more like a fruit cake than a tough guy. Bad choice of casting to begin with. And who names a character Ding-Dong anyway lol? There was so much cheese in this film it made me lack toes in toll her ants. ;p A generous 5/10 from me.
