The two assassins have different approaches. Ray Carver likes to keep a low profile while Aleksey wears Hawaiian shirts and usually comes in the front door. Carver works out, reads the Bible, kills people for hire, and stalks a girl. Dolph Lundgren gives the film some attempted comedy. During the opening credits, they opt to change the fonts and make the "N"s backwards. I thought it might somehow relate to the film, but it wasn't that deep.
Both these stars have done better films and Cuba has certainly done worse. The Eastern Europeans sounded like they learned English by watching Dos Equis beer commercials. The film ends at a point where there could be an interesting sequel if they bothered to hire writers.
PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, near sex, no nudity.
are always handled carefully, not sloppily, and with a definite, obvious respect for the days when audiences were presented with hand to hand fight scenes that were like mini martial arts demonstrations rather than quickly cut illusions of combat. Kaufman really seems to have respect for the genre. It seems that these days, with very few exceptions, the place to find a good action movie is in the DTV market and Kaufman is definitely one of the directors to watch. Of course, having Dolph Lundgren give one of his more memorable performances in recent years helps a bit too. Let's hope this film is successful enough to call for a sequel.
Rival underworld gangs are battling over turf, and contract killer Ray Carver (Gooding) is hired by one group, to eliminate members of another gang. After Carver switches sides, and turns on his former employers, they enlist notorious hitman Alexei "the Wolf" Andreev (Lundgren), to complete the job, and also eliminate the duplicitous Carver.
Years previously, Carver apparently killed a man, as his young daughter looked on. Now a young woman also living in Prague, Carver has taken an interest in Janice Knowles (Claudia Bassols), who becomes another pawn in the gang war.
Cuba Gooding Jr. has had an interesting career. Once thought by some to have the potential to go the way of a Denzel Washington, he now seems relegated to B grade movies.Read more ›
The story: two assassins (Gooding and Lundgren) are pitted against each other in the middle of a Czech mob war.
I haven't followed Cuba Gooding's career for a long time, but I don't think he belongs in the DTV market - he's an Oscar winner, for goodness sakes, and the only one Dolph has ever worked with. However, neither in theaters nor on DVD do I think he's a great action performer: he has neither the presence nor the intensity, which adds to the overall boring nature of the character he plays, here. The script brings no new material to the conflicted loner cutout he plays, down to the bible-quoting dialogue he espouses.Read more ›
