He must fight to save the only thing he's ever done right in his life. He needs to uncover who is after him ...Written by
Well this wasn't a great movie by any means, very low budget and from what I understand straight to DVD which makes sense. Dolph gives a decent performance though in his role as a former KGB agent and sleeper spy, trying to break from his dark past and go straight. He's forced back into the killing game when his cover and career as a hit man is blown and he and his family (and girlfriend) targeted.
It is what it is, a low budget, B action flick. There are some OK fight scenes and shootouts, zero special effects though which limits things. And while I appreciated that this was in filmed in Vancouver and actually took place in Vancouver it was also fairly obvious that when Icarus/Eddie was supposed to be in Russia or China he was still in Vancouver.
Dolph does do a decent job with his role -he's better than anyone else in the movie which unfortunately isn't saying much and he's (still) very nice to look at. 1/13/16
