After renting the abysmal,complicated,confusing,badly acted and edited mess
that was 'The Foreigner (2003)' I thought Seagal's career was all but
So I wasn't expecting much from this movie, and having just shelled
out nearly £10 to buy it I was almost sure I'd made a huge mistake, but
tonight with nothing on the TV I thought I'd give it a whirl.
What a Surprise! It kept me on the edge of my seat from start till finish even though it had a unoriginal storyline (Very similar to Arnie's 'Commando (1985)' - Seagal's a Ex-CIA Agent whose daughter Jessica just happens to be kidnapped along with her best friend Sara who is a daughter of a U.S Senator by a group of violent rebels, so Steve goes in guns blazing along with buddy turned Monk Sunti to save the day - against the advice of CIA Agent Leon Washington who wants to handle it in his own way.
The movie has a coherrent plot,plenty of action,good acting,nice locations and a moderate sized Budget ($18m)
Everything you want in a Action Flick!
Avoid Seagal's earlier effort as mentioned above and go straight to this picture My Rating *** out of *****

The US Secretary of State urges restraint -- he won't negotiate. Tom Collins, an ex-colleague of Jake's, recognizes Jessica on the ransom tape and tips Jake off.
