A hard core Interpol Agent is assigned to an Eastern European task force to target gun trafficking and dope running throughout the Balkans. While investigating a Russian gun dealer, his team is caught in a bloody street war between a Gypsy gang and the Russians, leaving one task force member dead. Fueled with vengeance, he leads us on an action packed thrill ride while avenging his friend's death
Steven Seagal is back to break bones and take names in this primitive yet effective tale of honor among thieves. This time around, the Big Guy (who also wrote the script) is a member of the International Drug Task Force bent on avenging the death of his partner by an up-and-coming Balkan mobster with a penchant for barely clad female henchmen. As the resulting bodies begin to block the flow of Eastern European traffic, Seagal receives unexpected help in his vendetta from an older gangster repelled by the new wave of crime. Lauro Chartrand, a former stuntman making his directorial debut, relies a little too heavily on swooshing camerawork and stuttering edits, yet still manages to deliver a fair number of inventively staged action sequences, anchored by the strange yet undeniable charisma of his leading man. Seagal may be settling into his autumn years--these days, the husky star doesn't so much move during fight scenes as draw thugs into his gravitational pull--but he still knows how to bring the pain. --Andrew Wright

That said, this is actually one of his better films. I know that's a low bar, but it moves along at a decent pace and has a reasonably coherent plot. It's not great, but it's at least entertaining and it didn't insult my intelligence. My main gripe is the director trying to make the movie look cool and edgy with cheap camera tricks like speeding up the film, freeze frames, and double images. It makes it look like he's trying way too hard.
Through the first half I thought it might be low-key, below average and I might be disappointed ,,, but I was wrong!!! The movie "carried well" from start to finish; very well written, acted (by all) and directed.
I found the (international) acting to be top-notch and the screenplay had no extra bovine crap, no melodramatic bs thrown in for the female audience member ,,, except maybe for Seagal taking a few moments to satisfy his woman. It was brief and realistically erotic.
All in all a very good and very entertainiing movie.
Above all I loved the international scenery and the outstanding international actors!!!

ist ein sehr Aktion geladener Film,
in dem die Storry etwas zu kurz kommt und
leider muss ich sagen, dass die Storry doch etwas zu wünschen lässt ein wenig
flach und für meinen Geschmack auch etwas langwierige sich wiederholende Passagen in denen sich sehr schnell erkännen lässt wie es weiter gehent.
Da durch erscheint der Film auch länger als er ist und man verliert irgend wann die Lust.
Also wer einen reinen Aktio Film ohne richtig gute anspruchsvolle Storry möchte, dem kann ich es zwar nicht empfelen aber denn noch ist es jetzt nicht die schlechtesten Anschaffung!
Naja also wegen der etwas langwierigen Passagen und wegen der Storry, die zu wünschen lässt nur drei Sterne!
