The film begins at the Montana ranch home of a former CIA Opperative - James Dial. One last time, he is coaxed back into action to kill a terrorist in London. It all goes wrong and he is forced into hiding where he meets and befriends a 12 year old girl.
Low production values, stars phoning it in for the money and a predictable ponderous plot. What we have here is a Steven Segal movie in all but name, except it stars Wesley Snipes in the lead role instead.
The whole dynamic of an assassin's interaction with an infatuated young girl is I guess a take on the central theme from Leon (1994).
But where that beautifully and subtley shows the bond of platonic love growing between the two, here it comes across quite creepily as if Wesley's character is grooming the girl for other reasons.
Charles Dance, Lena Headey your better than this, other than Eliza Bennett as the girl (Emily Day) no one comes out of this with any credit.
I guess there isn't much to say about this movie, except what the fuck happened to Wesley Snipes? I remember a time when Snipes made decent action movies and he wasn't a cliche non-charismatic, emotionless actor. The movie wasn't horrible, but it was unentertaining and really kind of boring.
The story couldn't keep my attention, i found myself drifting away from the television multiple times. I realize that he might have been doing movies like ths just to help pay his back taxes......or maybe not LOL.
The action was uninteresting as well and i honestly think that if there was an actor that had put some effort into the performance this could be a decent movie.
