Our Score
It's not often that you get to hear characters thinking, but this is just one of the unusual tactics adopted by Hong Kong director Po Chih Leong in this otherwise workaday Steven Seagal vehicle. The idea that Seagal's retired government agent would be the penpal of an orphan at a hostel he helped establish in Poland is pretty unlikely. But once Ida Nowakowska is abducted by sex trafficker Matt Schulze, this seems one of the premise's more feasible aspects, as Seagal (who is less invincible than usual) finds his former employers are as keen as his adversary to thwart his mission.


A former intelligence agent whiles away his days in retirement corresponding with a Polish orphan girl. He decides to visit her when her letters stop arriving, only to discover her foster home is being used as a cover for human trafficking - forcing him to draw on his expertise to save his pen friend and bring the criminals to justice. Action thriller, starring Steven Seagal and Ida Nowakowska.
