Synopsis:When a former spy's estranged daughter is kidnapped in France, he sets out to find her at any cost. Relying on his special skills, he tracks down the ruthless gang that abducted her and launches a one-man war to bring them to justice and rescue his daughter.
As my financial meltdown continues, this will be one of many releases that I'll not be picking up soon. Dang! The action and direction within compelled me thru the entire movie, but I reserve some hesitation in regards to this release if it's not the international version.
I heard this movie was really good, never took Liam Neesen for a butt-kicking name-taking badass, but I will keep an open mind since I like his acting. Will rent for sure and probably bite if there is a good BOGO sale down the road. Didn't he also just lose his wife due to a ski accident...that's gotta suck for the guy. My wife and I ski and board all through the winter, and you never think someone on a beginner slope would actually have a fatal accident, very sad indeed.
Excellent movie, probably excellent PQ & AQ if it's a simmilar transfer than the French one...the only thing that dissapoint me, this is a Region A disc, so why there's Russian, German, Italian DTS tracks, and even not a single french Dub? Since when there's not enough french people in canada, that's new? Anyway, worth buying it!
