Our Score
Tom Berenger returns for a third outing as marine super-sniper Thomas Beckett in this standard small-screen sequel. Yet while the former Platoon star slips comfortably back into military gear, the derivative material feels too slight for his talents - his ageing character is sent to Vietnam to dispatch a suspected terrorist kingpin, who turns out to be an old war buddy. As painful memories consequently haunt his mission, Beckett's flashback-heavy reflection takes precedence over his physical heroics, slowing the pace and fuelling grumpy exchanges with his young local sidekick (Byron Mann) that emphasise his now-dinosaur status. When action does explode, it's routinely executed but effective, with the obligatory pumping soundtrack upping the tension for some surprisingly grisly kills.

Summary

An expert marksman thinks his days of secret missions and international intrigue are over - until he is unexpectedly hurled back into the fray, battling one of Asia's biggest crime syndicates. However, his loyalty is put to the test when he comes face to face with his target. Thriller sequel, starring Tom Berenger, Byron Mann and Denis Arndt.
