Tough L.A. cop Roland Sallinger (Steven Seagal) is betrayed by his partner during a stake out, and left for dead - but Roland is still breathing when the ambulance arrives. A year later, he's still recovering from his ordeal and has been forced into retirement from the squad. Meanwhile in Bucharest, Romanian police chief Constantin Korzha (Steph DuVall), an old friend of Roland's, is a wealthy businessman and happily retired from the force. His daughter Nikita (Liezl Carstens) is a Paris Hilton-style heiress who's dating Marco Inescu, star forward on the Tornadoes football team. One night Nikita is kidnapped after partying with Marco at a club. When he gets a call from Constantin asking him to come to Romania, Roland takes the next flight. When he arrives, Roland learns that after the fall of communism in Romania, the gangs have become more powerful than ever and have targeted Constantin and his family. He must now help his old friend retrieve and protect his daughter, while trying to discover who is behind it all in a very unfamiliar place.
Quite good for a recent Seagal flick
- The Keeper review by RL
He peaked in the 90's with Under Siege, On deadly ground & Fire down below. He showed total truth, conviction with his cool zen spiritual presence. Nowadays he's no longer slim & handsome, but still persists trying to make the same action flicks, with the grace & charisma of a 3-legged hippopotamus.
Although not brilliant, this film shows that he can still do it, given the right scenario. It's well filmed with just the right amount of plot, suspense, romance & action.
