The female lead presented a constant angry persona.
Eileen
Unusual ending, but the lead actress seems not to show too much affection by what happens, when she was very affectionate about other situations.

I thought the actors did a very good job and the movie kept my attention until the very end.

This was very good considering that it was a draft. If production cost are held in check and action scenes are spiced up, this should make a profit. Save money on the actors as well. No need to hire Matt "I can't act" Damon.

The movie plot has some potential but lacked character development. The characters were more like set pieces being moved through the scenes reciting lines from an unrefined script. The father daughter relationship lacked and boils down to one constantly begging the other to do something that they don't want to, whether it be to leave or to stay and help the stranded girl. The two women seem to bond way too quickly and blindly trust one another. The hatred that the antagonist feels towards his former CIA handler could have used a little back story (maybe some flashback cutscenes) rather than just being explained away through conversations in the final few minutes. All in all I think there is potential for the movie, cut out some of the shooting across dark hallways and include and develop the characters' interpersonal relationships better.

Not what I expected. This is no more than a picture board cartoon. Wish I knew how to delete this even from my cloud account.

Enjoyed movie and as it's stage I agree that the character interpersonal relationships are lacking and also flasback scences would help. Ralph has the snap that his part calls for, but unbelievable he would leave his daughter in that way on her own, as the two girls that have two guns just at thier feet wouldn't react. Actor Mallissaor is it Mel, Marie or how many names does she go buy has to much hesitation in many scenes. In reality is she just bullet proof or she just slow in the mind. The cold war is just as brutal as the real war on people. She shows no respect to her father during the movie so I wonder what in the heck she goes even looking for him. I believe a block buster could be in the making if someone had the balls to show how the cold war has effected our society as well as the basic family values, but that might make it a little deep huh. Comment anyone?Alexander Nevsky

Okay, it isn't the most realistic in some areas, but it reminded me of a mixture of The Borne Identity and Taken. I thought the actors did a very good job and the movie kept my attention until the very end.

My kind of movie! Not familiar with any of the actors or actress in this movie but they did an outstanding job. I realized when Melanie found her dad and he was being tortured that he had to be involved with the CIA. When Mel freed her dad and he came out kicking and punching the way that he did I knew he had some training. I would have loved to have seen this story ending as if it was a documentary or Pulitzer Prize winning story written by Melanie documenting her experiences: her relationship and search for her father, the story of the mail order bride/prostitute Ailana, and the Russian sex trade. Furthermore, Mel handled a gun way too well and could really kick butt for an ordinary photographer/reporter. So why not let her actual job be a CIA agent like her dad and that the whole photographer/reporter piece was part of her job. Somewhere in the movie they can both surprise each other with finding out that they are both CIA operatives and were totally unaware of it.

I was watching the movie with my 13 yrs old daughter and had to skip some of the sex scenes. If there were not any sex scenes shown it would have been implied and the average movie watcher would have drawn the conclusion that the girls were forced into prostitution.

I would watch this again so that I could see if I missed anything!

From The Inception this Was Meant To Be A True "Idea" By A Unknown Studio To Get Their Feet "Wet" In Film. This Was A "Rough" Film.Human Trafficking DOES OCCUR People. Even Lisa Ling Has Reported On TV The Horrors Of "The Streets".This Was Made In Another Country~First & Foremost.Then, Every Person Put Everything Into Making This A Successfull Storyline. Literally Ripped From Pages Of Every News Company That Allows "Free Speech"."Sound" Has Been The Huge Complaint. However, If Filmed As Edgy As Would Be In Reality~All Would Complain Still. As For The "Lead" Actors Losing Momentum? Reality Does Not Promise Roses & Candies on The End Of The Reel.Yes,We Have To Distance Ourselves From Cruelty To Humanity.This Delivered As Well As Possible. Issues w/Sound Can Be Addressed.Human Souls Believed In This As I Do & Made A Gritty, Realistic Film Of Humanity At Our Best & Worst.To "Critique" As Though One Has A Degree In Film Or Ever Took A Film Course Is Unfair To All Whom Worked Nights & Days.Just Say,"Not For Me".Yet, The 5 "Stars Do Not Lie.This Has Moxie.Good To All!
