Review

Our Score
Although the testosterone-laden action is plentiful in this jungle-island war drama, the script (partially written by John Sayles) is startlingly good. A group of mercenaries sent to the island is charged with convincing the locals to sign over the mineral rights, but some of the group find themselves siding with the islanders. Despite the fact that this has all the makings of a bad commando movie, it's probably the best film of Dolph Lundgren's career. This unusually intellectual war flick includes a stand-out performance by BD Wong (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) as a wisecracking local.

Summary

A guilt-ridden Swedish mercenary turns against the thugs he once hired to deprive the residents of a small island in the South China Sea of their mining rights. Action thriller, starring Dolph Lundgren and Charlotte Lewis.
