Movie Info

An undercover CIA agent attempting to thwart the sale of a nuclear weapon is forced to do battle with a dangerous horde of murderous arms dealers in this explosive action entry directed by Hong Kong veteran Po-Chih Leong and starring American action icon Wesley Snipes. Sonni Griffith (Snipes) is en route to Poland to expose a notorious arms dealer when the dealer is tipped off to the agent's identity and Griffith subsequently ends up in a prison cell. Soon released by the CIA with a mission to escort beautiful Russian Nadia (Silvia Colloca) back to the United States, Griffith quickly learns that the very same arms dealer he sought to wipe out is willing to kill for a valuable secret known only to his strong-willed charge. It seems that Nadia is the only one who knows the location of the hidden 30 million dollars that would allow Griffith's nemesis to purchase a nuclear bomb. Now with nothing to lose and everything to fight for, Griffith and Nadia must take on the world's most deadly arms dealer in order to save millions of lives.

Audience Reviews for The Detonator

Manages to be both nasty and dull at the same time. If all you're looking for is loud and brainless then this might just this might do, but I just found it irritating. Dialogue trying to be clever and ending up embarrassing, chase scenes and explosions everywhere but somehow managing to be predictable; I lost count of the clich├ęs and I lost the will to keep on watching.

It's quite typical. Wesley Snipes does a good job, but the rest of the cast kind of is a bit below par. The movie lacks in a couple spots, and it really shows you how far Snipes seems to have sunk. I don't know what happened to him, but lets hope he gets back on track soon.

I was surprised how bad the acting was. The story was terrible. Got half way through the movie and Had enough. I wouldn't watch it again.
