Review

Our Score
A bearded and bespectacled Steven Seagal ups his game in one of his better straight-to-DVD outings. Re-teaming with regular director Keoni Waxman (who also co-wrote the by-the-numbers script), he's more energetic than usual here and actually seems to enjoy the predictable, and often preposterous, events that see his semi-retired special ops man taking on ruthless gangsters in Romania, after they target his pretty neighbour (Iulia Verdes) and her kid sister. The action is abundant compared to a lot of the star's disastrous post-2000 movies, with gunplay, bloody knife fighting and adequate martial arts shared between a slower but enthusiastic Seagal, and the far younger Victor Webster, as Verdes's in-debt-to-the-mob half-brother. Exaggerated sound effects and quickfire editing keep the pacing perky, and there are plenty of the unintentional laughs that many Seagal fans love, not least in the ludicrous final scene.

Summary

A special forces soldier quits the military after a disastrous mission and resolves to live a quiet life as a handyman in an apartment complex. He must face his past when a family caught in the middle of a feud between Chinese and Russian gangs needs his protection. Action thriller, starring Steven Seagal and Victor Webster.
