A little more complicated and a little less violence & action than most of Dolph's movies. It is along the lines of two parts 'The Transporter' & one part 'The Bourne Identity'. It does have more twists & turns, and hence is more complex/complicated to try to appeal to the more cerebral and the reduced action/fighting with grunting noises might reduce appeal to those inclined in that direction. It does have some of the usual 'infinite ammo cheats' when needed and there is action & fighting but just not as much as other Dolph films. I enjoyed it, I hope you do.
Did I really order this or was it sent by mistake?!? In any case not what I would like or recommend. ~ This is a documentary about the history of two Israeli movie makers, Globus & Golan, who came to the USA to make movies, Grade B movies, starting off with skin flicks, then action movies, and then they tried to make a classic. These two guys were scam artists. Their entire career was nothing but a movie making version of a ponzi scheme. The lied, bullied, stole ideas, etc., to stay one step ahead of the creditors. They should both have gone to jail with Madoff. All three did the exact same fraud scheme.
It is entertaining, with Dolph & Van Damme in the same movie it is exactly what you should have expected with it when you ordered it, and, it is not a classic. Lots of shootouts & killing, lots of testosterone, lots of close quarter combat fighting (with lots of fighting 'grunting' noises), car chases & crashes, and lots of action go along with Dolph/Van Damme and their pictures. Good plot, good continuity, and well made movie. Synopsis: An experiment, a good concept, gone awry. Scientists try to reduce American losses in the military and civilian law enforcement by resurrecting military personal killed in action in Vietnam. They make the cyborgs stronger, faster, and obedient. An unforeseen complication arises when the unisols start having pre-death memories. Of course Dolph & Van Damme are advisories throughout, before and after their original deaths. You have to love the infinite ammo cheat whenever it is called on, hollywood follows its receipt for moneymaking: Guns, guns, & more guns (You have to question hollywood's integrity when they preach anti-2nd amendment but don't let their statements interfere with the box office gross), pinball speed action, a little skin, Van Damme's butt), a dollop of 'love' to try to make it movie with some 'redeeming quaintly' (which this move does not have). Enjoy it for what it is worth.
It is entertaining, it is exactly what you should have expected with it when you ordered it, and it is not a classic. Lots of shootouts & killing, lots of testosterone, lots of close quarter combat fighting (with lots of fighting 'grunting' noises, though a bit too much shaky camera action), car chases & crashes, and lots of action go along with Dolph and his pictures. Synopsis: Dolph is an assassin, a former KGB operative with a new identity himself, it involves the KGB's old operatives, the Russian mafia, some nebulous oriental mafia group, the American 'crime syndicate', the CIA, and subgroups, with their own special interests, of the above. Dolph still loves his ex-wife & daughter but has a gorgeous hottie to help him make it from dusk to dawn. Suddenly Dolph finds himself a target from all the above groups without anyone to trust. In the end he is in conflict with a former KBG agent, who was a friend, and whose life he once saved. You have to love the infinite ammo cheat whenever it is called on, and that Dolph can be unarmed & can still kill multiple well trained & heavily armed advisories. Lots of dots were not connected and there were unanswered questions. hollywood follows its receipt for moneymaking: Guns, guns, & more guns (You have to question hollywood's integrity when they preach anti-2nd amendment but don't let their statements interfere with the box office gross), pinball speed action, a little skin, a dollop of 'love' to try to make it movie with some 'redeeming quaintly' (which this move does not have).

Terrible on so many levels. This is an evil movie, made by evil men, for evil men, and to make men evil is they let this movie consume them. Think on the scale of the ameba. That is the mindset of this movie. If you believe that evil rules everyone and everything on earth then this movie is for you. As 'dark' and depressing a movie as I have seen. Everyone is a drunk, immoral, selfish, self-centered, self-serving, or some other manner of deviant human being. The overall story is about men genetically altered to be super fighters, super strong, super fast, able to heal almost instantly, including regrow severed appendages. There are two factions of these supermen, both trying to eliminate the other so they can infiltrate mankind, all the while trying to remain incognito until they are ready to take over the world. The flashing lights scenes give most a headache, a lack of development of transitions leaves most wondering, and some esoteric speech to make pseudointellectuals think that they are sophisticated. There is lots of meaningless pinball speed action, several 10 minute violent, bloody, gore filled, scenes with a lot of animistic men grunting. Wanton sex depicting women as only for base pleasures. More of hollywood's low level garbage that is do as I say, not as I do. hollywood loves guns, meaningless violence, gore, vulgarity, and degradation of women. If you want to feel bad about everything and everyone watch this movie.
