Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

A decade after he and Billy Zane assassinated a Panamanian rebel leader, Tom Berenger's flint-hard marine is brought out of retirement to pick off a Serbian maverick who is no longer useful to the CIA. Director Craig R Baxley's formulaic action thriller follows the original pretty closely, with Berenger this time having his back covered by Bokeem Woodbine, who has been plucked from death row with the promise of a pardon if he undertakes what his handlers half-hope will be a suicide mission. This is unpleasant stuff that depicts the Balkans as a playground for big boys and their toys, and Berenger's charisma is again wasted on an overplotted, derivative movie.
