    It has a concept that would've worked if it had better acting and was treated like a drama instead of an action movie. It comes off as silly cuz its an action movie but still better acting and directing would've improved it entirely.

    this was a pilot for a tv show and it was clearly in the wrong fans with Jonn Woo. the problem here is that television wasn't as big as it is now so a John Woo action tv show was never going to have a decent budget. the acting is all over the place and Dolph Lundhegren just hasn't got the charisma to compliment the film. He is just bad in the lead which is a shame because he should of been an interesting actor for Woo to direct. sloppy direction is the main issue here and the story just hasn't got the legs to help it gather an audience. john Woo only has made one great film in america and this isn't it, do yourself a favour and watch face/off. this film doesn't even deserve a night in, it is just a bad film with only the battle scenes to recommend it

    Dolph plays a man scared of the colour white, the films makes little sense and you can only laugh as the bad guys use the whitephobia to their advantage (attempting to drown him in milk at one point).

    Dolph Lundgren plays Jack Devlin, a bodyguard for high profile clients. While protecting the daughter of a friend, a flash grenade blinds him and causes him childhood trauma whenever he sees white. This is a TV movie, but it was supposed to be a pilot for a new tv show (like the Once a Thief the tv movie). The production values are on the small side, but there's still a good performance from Lundgren and some decent action scenes.

    Incredibly, laughably bad John Woo misfire in which Dolph Lundgren is scared of milk. You heard me.

    Try to envision this without laughing: Dolph's only weakness is the color white. The presence of all of light's spectrum. Still not laughing? Now, and this is a spoiler, where do you have the final, climactic fight? A goddamn dairy, that's where. A milk factory. Automatic 3 stars for the balls on the guy who pitched this.
