Review

Rating: 1 out of 5.

An out-of-shape Steven Seagal mumbles his way through yet another woeful action drama. In a cliché-ridden plot, he plays an ex-CIA agent trying to rescue his kidnapped young daughter after he's embroiled in an international conspiracy involving a deadly virus. Not even the hilariously ill-advised presence of Imelda Staunton as an American ambassador can detract from the poorly paced mess that follows, as dreadful acting and clumsy direction compound a risible script. Worse still, the all-important fight sequences lack vitality and thrills, leaving it to the thumping soundtrack to provide atmosphere. It's not Seagal's weakest film, but it certainly comes close.
