Good with a bowl of popcorn!

I had a hard time understanding the dialogue more than anything.

Clearly formulaic and doesn't create intensity.

Very interesting.

Love movie surprises - in my experience they're uncommon. And it's been nearly a year since my last sip of cool water across the parched retread-filled desert called modern entertainment.

Rented this in the thought that, since the cover art showcased a pair of actors that I generally enjoy, Jason Patric and the legendary James Caan - I would find a halfway decent B-movie boilerplate to pass the night. But surprise, surprise - neither are the star of this vehicle.

No, that falls to UK actor Craig Fairbrass. And he was actually pretty good in the lead. No, I take that back, he was very good. Never heard of the actor prior to screening this flick - now I'm going to be searching out his other projects.

Tells the story of Lex Walker, formerly of the British Army, now currently employed as a private contractor posted to the middle east. And Walker has just received the worst kind of news - his only child has died from a drug overdose. Quickly followed by heartless company orders to continue his current assignment. His "personal issues" aren't their problem.

Stunned at their callousness, he gives notice by way of a verbal resignation with the emphasis on the fornication of his superior and their employer, preferably one with the other. He's going home to put his little girl to rest. But sadly, even more grief is laid upon his broad shoulders. Upon his return to England, Walker learns that her remains never arrived home - they're still in Los Angeles.

Dad is through messing about - he's going to personally bring her home. And maybe knock-in some heads for good measure.

But he soon discovers not everything is as it seems.

First, the remains tagged with his girl's name aren't hers.

Enjoyed the movie. Uncomplicated plot...reminded me of Taken. English accent was understandable and that was a plus for me. Good with a bowl of popcorn!

Lex Walker (Craig Fairbrass) is a British mercenary. When he is not killing his second love is Jack Daniels followed by his semi-estranged daughter Samantha (Melissa Ordway). Lex must leave his job to fly to LA (the LA that looks like Baton Rouge where the film was shot) and identify the body of his daughter. Except it is not her!!! Craig Fairbrass stars in this film because Liam Neeson has already done one.

James Caan is in the film, so we know who plays the bad guy and how this ends. The only mystery is what is the daughter into (explained about an hour into the film) and how many people get killed/beat up in the process.

The DVD box description claims Lex works with a detective (Jason Patric) to find his daughter. That is a bit of a stretch, as the two never work side by side. He is instead helped by a bar waitress (Shannon Elizabeth) who he over tipped.

James Caan had to use some carefully orchestrated tough guys moves as it looks like he has been propped up aka "Weekend at Bernies." I had to laugh as he carefully punched some huge steroid freak and doubled him over.

The film okay for those who need something to pass the time. Clearly formulaic and doesn't create intensity. A bit on the Seagal campy side.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

I enjoyed this non stop action movie as it kept you wondering what was going to happen next. The plot was easy to follow as it was straight forward in the story line. The acting was above par , which made the seem realistic.

Good plot but bad acting. Waste of my monies. I am finding that the ratings for the movies on amazon are not to be believed. I don't know what show the rest of you saw but this was a lousy movie.

The plot to the movie was good, but the choice of actors and actress was not that good. The accents were so heavy that the words became indistinguishable from scene to scene. Even rewinding back to a scene and replaying it most of the time you could only pick out a few words. Worth watching once.

The storyline was good, though done again and again. I've seen better. I had a hard time understanding the dialogue more than anything. The acting was ok, nothing great.

Interesting flick, acting not bad, plot good... Waaayyyy too long scenes where the director appears to be trying to be 'artistic' and get only snoozes.
