Our Score
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.


A former CIA agent is duped into smuggling a deadly artificially engineered virus into Europe while on holiday with his daughter - who is later kidnapped by terrorists intent on using her as a bargaining chip, prompting to embark on a desperate rescue attempt. Action thriller, starring Steven Seagal, Eva Pope, Imelda Staunton and Alex Ferns.
