This is actually a movie with potential that tries to rise above its cliches. Brennan Elliot plays a young FBI agent taking an undercover role as a hit man working for an obscure but frightening right wing terrorist organization. Mike Dudikoff is the organization's top assassin (named "The Silencer" which might make you say "oh, oh" but at least storywise and for both characters does serve its purpose). He is a remorseful hitman and he is asked by his superiors to be Elliot's teacher. That description alone places the movie in familiar Hollywood territory, though this movie only really reminds you a little bit of motion pictures such as The Package (someone used as "hitman" for an organization but maybe for some other purpose) or The Mechanic (the bond between the master hitman and the apprentice). When the plot thickens and things do not appear to be what they seem, the two end up forming a bond as Elliot, especially tries to uncover the truth while "The Silencer" tries to do his best to protect "his apprentice". Ironicly, however, the characters also end up getting caught up in the plot which with its surprises and "what if" scenarios almost overshadow the persons involved. Perhaps a bit more time was needed to especially focus on Dudikoff caring about Elliot's welfare and not simply explained by yet another plot twist. The story however works strongest through these characters as it does explore what is "The Silencer," which can be the piece of equipment that's basically used to kill with no questions as to why or what it's silencing. Overall, the movie manages to hold up and be a better than average spy movie. Just don't let any "what if" scenarios of the plot distract you too much.

This movie develops upon a believable plot, an extremist organization funded by wealthy corporate interests with heavy political ties within the government. The central characters are very believable; a former US Army Ranger (Dudikoff) who is a highly trained member of US Army Special Operations; efficient, cold professional), an FBI undercover agent (Elliot) who is green and inept but with his own motivations. Although produced in 1999, it seemed quite current in 2014.

Absent are the usual shallow characters with simplistic motivations that usually sink an otherwise good movie of this type. Although there is historical evidence in the United States of anti-government right wing groups who have threatened such behavior, the movie is careful to not simply lump all right wing/conservatives into this light.

There is a nice plot twist at the end too (and a not too polite jab at Herbert Hoover).

Good movie and highly recommended.

Yea, maybe this wasn't the greatest movie of all time but I gave it five stars because I loved it. Brennan Elliot is a young FBI agent who is sent deep under cover, so deep that everybody thinks he's dead. His cover is that of a young hit man and he is to expose a group of international terrorists. Only things aren't as they seem. Michael Dudikoff is the Silencer, a top assassin. He becomes the young "hit man's" teacher through the next weeks. Teaching him how to kill. Elliot's character learns that your enemy can become your friend and your friend can become your enemy. He also finds out the Silencer's horrible secret that can turn new found friend into your most vile enemy.
