A cut above your average low budget actioner

Over the last decade or so, Seagal, Van Damme and Lundgren have specialised in quickly filmed, low budget action movies, designed to go direct to the home video market. Some have been awful, and some have been pleasant suprises. This film happily falls into the latter category.

Dont expect Cuba Gooding Jnr to give the best performance in this film. He may have the oscar on the shelf, and get top billing here, but this is Dolph Lundgren's movie. His character is infintitely more interesting, and he steals every scene he is in with a performance that builds on his strength in portraying unhinged/crazy characters (as he did in U-Sol, Johnny Mnemonic and The expendables movies). With Louis Mandylor playing the main villain, performances across the board are way better than we have come to expect from this type of movie.

The plot is nothing special- it has shades of Fistfull of Dollars, Last Man Standing,In Bruges and Leon, and the sub-plot involving Gooding and the lead female, is handled particularly badly, and grates against the rest of the movie, but its a little issue that doesnt spoil the experience.

The fight choreography is solid, the direction does not rely on 'shaky cam' and/or quick-cut editing, so you get to see whats going on, and the bullet wounds are done with good old fashioned squibs, rather than CGI, which at this budget, invariably ends up looking fake and cheap.

The end of the film hints at a sequel that would seen Lundgren and Gooding Jnr's characters returning for more carnage. On the evidence of this movie, I hope that they do.

Well worth checking out for fans of the action genre.

Required: inordinate and excessive suspension of disbelief

This is like a 50s cowboy film where they white hat bullets always fly true and the black hats couldn't hit an elephant in a small room. The fight scenes are unbelievable, otherwise good actors are embarrassing.
I turned it off before half way and really, after I've made the commitment to using up some of my precious evening hours, I don't do that lightly.

Not a bad movie. Dolphs accent is beyond terrible but he's a very cool character and to me was like an audition to what Jack Reacher should have been and certainly not Tom Cruise.

Worst Accent Award!

Oh Boy! The other "actors" in this, make Lundgren's acting look Oscar worthy. Obviously a low budget flick, but next time, max. out the credit card.

One In The Chamber!!
Verified purchase
A seasoned assassin plays both sides in a Russian gang war and becomes the target of an unknown enemy.
The fight choreography is good, solid performances by Cuba Gooding Jr.and Dolph Lundgren keep it together keeps you watching till the end.
Overall a good solid action crime thriller. Would recommend this for fans of Cuba Gooding Jr.and Dolph Lundgren. Worth a watch.

The end of the film hints at a sequel that would seen Lundgren and Gooding Jnr's characters returning for more bloodshed.

Tongue in the cheek action film, not to be taken seriously.
Usual gang war fair plot with a twist. Good to see Dolf not taking himself too seriously.
