A mumbling Steven Seagal is out for vengeance once again in this self-penned ego trip that feels more like an episode of a TV show than a fully formed feature. Practically sleepwalking his way through the clich├ęs, Seagal stars as an Interpol agent in Romania who's driven into an unorthodox alliance to catch the psychotic gangster responsible for murdering his new partner. Dull gunplay, unconvincing fisticuffs and the usual gratuitous female nudity provide flimsy filler, as the stereotypical characters kill time in preparation for the rushed but relatively gruesome climactic showdown. Clumsy and pointlessly gimmicky visuals compound the overall tedium, and betray seasoned stuntman Lauro Chartrand's debut director status. Ultimately, only supporting actor Dan Badarau demonstrates any skill, bringing surprising weight to his unimaginatively written role as a Russian crime lord.

Plot Summary
