An ex-special forces member is drawn into a game of revenge when his old handler is murdered.
Denzel is pretty decent if you like the character he seems to play in every movie.
Plot was bland, predictable, and done in basically every Steven Seagal movie before it.
Graphic violence was unnecessary, didn’t add to the experience whatsoever.
Antagonists couldn’t keep up with Denzel despite all involved having the same special ops training.
The super-invincible protagonist is apparently above legal scrutiny as no mention is made of how he operates outside the law.
I’m all for trashy b-grade movies. I’ve seen far too many Seagal films and have a sweet spot for Nic Cage. This one was a miss for me because it felt like everyone involved was trying to dupe the viewers. Having an a-list in a shitty movie doesn’t make the movie magically work and this is a prime example. I didn’t see the first one but caught up rather quickly and kind of wish I didn’t see the second one even if it was a free sneak peek.
