After a brief encounter with Mickey Rourke, he does some free lance work and goes vigilante over some Russian mafia types running prostitutes. Woman (Dominique Swain) with a terrible accent needs sister saved form bad guys. Bradley works for Eric Roberts by no surprise. He is up against bad guys Michael Madsen and Darryl Hannah who looks like a Botox vampire, a long fall from the spanking material she used to portray.
The fighting was fairly bad as there a void of the exaggerated hit noises that goes into action films. Instead it sounded like soft blows on leather jackets, mostly because they were wearing leather jackets and barely touching each other.
The dialogue was bad, at times so bad as to be entertaining.
Guide: F-bomb. Sex and brief nudity
During an early scene where Gary Daniels is ordering takeout in a Chinese restaurant two young black hoods wander in and one is apparently supposed to have shoplifted something--except there is nothing around that the teen could have grabbed since there are no visible shelves or coolers. At another point some Russian thugs beat up two prostitutes outside Gary Daniels apartment--one is frantically knocking on his door for help but he doesn't want to get involved. The thugs knock around the girls some more, throw them in a car and drive away. A few minutes later when Gary Daniels finally makes up his mind to act and goes outside the whorehouse turns out to be about four doors down from his apartment--so what was the point of the car? Did they drive 100 feet?
Dominique Swain's hammy performance as a Russian hooker is actually entertaining and for a brief time helps to offset Gary Daniels inability to express any emotion besides possibly indifference. Unfortunately Skin Traffik makes the very great mistake of killing her off and with her goes literally the only entertainment value the movie actually had.
The supporting cast is filled with talented actors including Mickey Rourke, Daryl Hannah, Eric Roberts, Michael Madsen, and Jeff Fahey--all of whom are wasted, although Eric Roberts at least seems to be trying to make the most of his limited screen-time--nobody else makes an impression, all were likely hired for one day's work each and considering what a patchwork mess the script is it's quite possible none of them even knew what the movie was about.
Skin Traffik has a cobbled together script that rarely makes sense for more than 20 minutes at a time, action scenes staged with no skill, energy or imagination and a cast of slumming actors--Mickey Rourke's Oscar nominated turn in The Wrestler was already seven years ago but watching Skin Traffik it feels more like twenty. This one is worthless except for the 10 minutes or so that Dominique Swain manages to enliven--even hardcore action movie junkies would be wasting their time with this one.
