“This is basically a movie that was written for Michael Jai White and/or Scott Adkins teaming up with Dolph Lundgren. Not really but this is how it look. Either of these men could had made the movie a lot better with solid hand to hand action sequences. But instead we got Luke Wilson and Brandon Fehr.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDonu0026#39;t get me wrong, i like both guy. Luke Wilson is very good in Stargirl and Brandon Fehr was in a show i loved as a teen call Roswell. He managed to appear in DTV stuff from time to time over the years always doing a decent job. The issue here is these guys are supose to be highly trained mercenary but they fight like generic Mr Everybody. They ainu0026#39;t action movie stars.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe plot of the movie is something you seen a million time before, the u0026quot;Die Hard on a …u0026quot; formula. Personally im an action movie junky and i donu0026#39;t get enough with Hollywood big releases so i always dig trough the low budget direct to video market. Some actors made it their house and come with entertaining stuff even when the plot ainu0026#39;t anything original or great, they make it worth, they CARRY the movie. Sadly Luke Wilson and Brandon Fehr didnu0026#39;t.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDolph Lundgren had some nice scenes and at his age, he still manage to be intimidating and all but that was not enough in my opinion to carry it either.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eActually the whole cast of the movie are not nobodies. You may remember Scout Taylor-Compton from Halloween remakes and Nikky Whelan appears often in DTV movies i watch. Both ladies are beautifull and did the job perfectly fine in this.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eReally my issue is its just another generic action movie without anything original but it also lack what can make these really fun, the action.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThat said i may sound harsh and you probably wondering why i gave it a 6? Because for me the movie was slightly above average. I seen way worst in this genre and i canu0026#39;t say i was completely bored or exasperated by it. I just finished it thinking u0026quot;well that passed timeu0026quot;. But you have to take into consideration i see A LOT of these DTV movies. I am someone easily please when it comes to cinema, i rarely hate movies especially action ones, they have to be VERY boring and bad for me to dislike them. So if you are used to big budget movie theatre stuff like Jeremy Jahns or other reviewers like this, you may really dislike it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI would only recommand this movie to big action movie junkies who watch about 10 to 15 a month. Also maybe rent it on sale at 2-3$ instead of the 6-7$CAD or wait til its on Netflix or another streaming service as part of your subscribtion.”
