Box Office Details
After Bobby arrests Sorin in the beginning of the movie and is interrogating him, Sorin uses his hand to gesture and moments later a police officer is instructed to remove the handcuffs from Sorin which were keeping his hands behind his back.
Drug task force guy shoots, kicks, punches, and chops his way through drug peddlers.
Steven Seagal plays a member of an international drug task force
located in Romania. The movie develops a clear direction when a guy he
captures on a routine drug bust makes a deal with him and tells him
about a sadistic and somewhat psychotic drug dealer named Costel who
finances his buys by breaking and entering the houses of young rich
couples whom he has some sort of deep resentment for. As well, he tells
him about the gangster Costel is doing business with; a man named
Dimitri. Seagal's character tries to bring them to justice as an
antagonistic relationship escalates between the two men.
Seagal, with some kind of cowboy accent, I dunno, unnaturally black
hair, and barrel-chested, is still frisky; still breaking any body part
you're stupid enough to throw at him. I thought the movie was a solid
action film and worth watching if you like shoot 'em ups. I've always
thought that Seagal (and some other action stars of the like) practiced
a kind of "slight-of-hand martial arts" aided by camera angles and
editing. You really don't see what happens, just some hand movements
and/or foot movements that may or may not have made sense and then the
bad guy crashes to the floor. I'm pleased to say that there were some
clear exchanges in this movie.
For anybody who cares: In my mind this movie is a "guy film". Seagal
wrote in a sweet young thing for himself (And who can fault him? Ahhh,
the perks of being both actor and writer) but her role was not that
significant. The most time they spent on the screen together was maybe
"5 minutes" —if that. They talked a little about their relationship;
how work was coming between them, or something like that. I dunno. I
might have nodded off. Then after that "supposedly" they made love.
There was some fading in and out of images; a hand here, a hand there.
She was partially clothed and he was fully dressed (ready for action, I
guess, but not that kind). Then after that we never see her again. The
scene seemed almost obligatory.
Now if it were me, and I was both actor and writer, I would have
written in a prolonged love scene with this charming girl (life is too
short folks, opportunities must be seized). I would have shown that I
was not only good with my fists, but also with my—-. Well, I'm boring
you. Sorry. Boloxxxi out. Love.
