In order to get Christian Slater back into the FBI business, the film incorporates the acting of Donald Sutherland, Hollywood's go-to guy for black ops since "JFK." In addition to the killings, the movie centers around Slater's obsession with a red headed belly dancer and a psychologist talking to a blond woman who teaches English.
The film gives you clues and key plot points almost in a manner of "Student Bodies" with a big arrow and the word "clue" by it. The camera will zoom in and pause to let us know the director thinks his audience is composed of idiots. Slater was unconvincing. Elika Portnoy was boring. This is not an action thriller, but a poorly developed drama/mystery.
On the plus side we did get to see some of the old architecture of Bulgaria.
Parental Guide: No f-bombs, no nudity, minor bed scene.
Slater does a worthy job as a widowed former lawman brought in by the Ambassador of Bulgaria when some of Eastern Europe's baddest of the bad begin dying off in succession. In the interim he falls for a Turkish dancer with an issue or two of her own.
I really don't understand why more people didn't like this movie. It's not as though it was bound for greatness, but it was nowhere near bad.
I watched it while making dinner, pausing to load the pressure cooker and slice cucumbers. The movie was that pause-able NOT plausable.
If you didn't figure out what was up with the women killer in the first 10 minutes, you weren't watching.
Nice shots of Bulgaria and some fine nightlife belly dancing. Otherwise pretty much forgettable almost immediately after watching.
Any more will be a spoiler. Still, it did show off Bulgaria really well and I liked that. And NO gratuitous nudity!

I thought this movie would have been better considering the cast. The story line was confusing and the ending was unbelievable. Just not a good movie, don't waste your money.Published 18 months ago by Karen N.
There is nothing good about this movie except the END it is WORST OF THE WORST That says it all!Published on February 9, 2014 by P. G. Murray
Boring, senseless, with lots of time spent on irrelevant semi-romantic drivel. Sutherland was basically a cameo player and the plot made little sense.Published on November 16, 2013 by Loyd Eskildson
