Wesley Snipes adds another clunker to his CV with this lumbering sequel to the 2000 action thriller. Sleepwalking through the generic storyline, he returns as ex-secret agent Neil Shaw, who here finds himself embroiled in a political assassination conspiracy that naturally sees him set up to take the fall. Events are either overblown nonsense or totally tedious, frequently losing their way in a jumble of poor dialogue and unnecessarily confusing plot detail. Colourless performances compound the mess, while even the crowd-pleasing fight choreography is shoddy and unconvincing. But it's Josef Rusnak's inept direction that's the biggest disaster, continually highlighting the film's inadequacies with a pointless array of flashy camera techniques.

Plot Summary

Action thriller starring Wesley Snipes as agent Neil Shaw, who comes out of hiding to avenge the murder of a former colleague. But when more people start turning up dead, Shaw realises that he has been set up as part of an assassination conspiracy.
