Our Score
Wrong Turn co-writer Alan B McElroy must have been having a seriously bad day when he penned this abysmal sci-fi conspiracy tale. Too slow and unexciting to deserve its action thriller label, this second feature from Thai director Wych Kaosayananda (credited here as Kaos) plays like a third-rate TV cop show. Mumbling FBI man Antonio Banderas and his agent foe Lucy Liu make insipid leads as they unite to defeat a common enemy who's stolen a deadly, injectable micro-device. The repetitive procession of chase sequences and explosions that follows does nothing to help the unintelligible plot, and not even an incessant, pumping soundtrack can inject any real vigour. With its poorly executed fight scenes, clumsy camerawork and wooden support, the film is a truly painful experience.

Summary

A former FBI agent races against time to thwart a criminal mastermind responsible for developing a lethal `micro-device' that can be injected into victims, killing them yet leaving no trace. However, he soon discovers someone else is also after it. Action thriller, starring Antonio Banderas, Lucy Liu, Gregg Henry and Ray Park.
