When former black ops operative Cross and his partner Manning are assigned to decommission an old prison, they must oversee the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners.

Before long, an elite force of mercenaries assault the prison in search of the new arrivals.

As the true identities of the women are revealed, Cross realises he's caught in the middle of something far bigger than he had imagined....

If the new King of direct to Blu Ray action movies is Austin, then buy my player please. Everyone of his movies that he is billed first or second, is appalling, and to top it all off, he has no screen presence.

At least in the eighties, action stars and something about them, and in the nineties, they were just stupidly over the top, you couldn't help but love them.

The film goes for the last Die Hard route, two prisoners who have something, bad guys pretending to be someone they are not, and then the two heroes.

Seagal proves in this, that he is past it, he is no longer convincing as an action star, and while I'm sure he has stamina and strength in reality, he doesn't convince in this movie, he stands around looking perplexed and slaps a few people.

It's a new low for the star, I usually tolerate his poorest efforts, but this had med me irritated about twenty minutes in.

Do yourself a favour, ignore this, and realise that Van Damme is still making decent movies, that look like Die Hard compared to this tripe.

Positive.
1)Steven Seagal & Steve Austin team up together to kick some ass.
2)Good action sequences directed by Keoni Waxman.
3)One of Seagals recent better made movie's.
4)The catchphrase "It's the skills that's what it is" line delivered very cool by Seagal.

If your a big fan of Steven Seagal then you might be a bit let down by this movie as for these reasons, apart from the fight he has at the start of the film and the end there is not much he does then shoot guns and run his overweight body around but it is nice to see there is chemistry between Austin and Seagal, Now the positive of the film as I stated in the review title, this movie is more of an Steve Austin movie because he has more on screen time and uses the time he has on camera to entertain by kickin lots of ass, using laugh out loud catch phrases and to show his improvement as a action star. But if there is a secound movie I hope Mr.Seagal steps up his game to Austin's level and he should, as he has starred in more classic action movies then Steve Austin.

Well I have been a a fan for as long as Steven Segal has been making films !
That includes some of the pretty bad ones! Don't know why we as TRUE fans buy them but we do! This film is one of the much better ones. The action is non stop the acting is very good with strong action roles by proper American actors! Steve Austin is just right a tough guy and Steven Segal although he is not in the film as much as we would like still shows he can do the business. Unfortunately he still is very over weight and just looks slow! It is such a shame that our hero can't get his shape back!
Anyway a good film so worth a look if you are a fan.

Cross (Steven Seagal) is an operational genius. His partner Manning (Steve Austin) is a weapons expert. They are ex-special forces who work as black ops contractors. Their current job is to decommission a black ops prison, one that doesn't officially exist and is located in Oregon (seriously?). For some reason our "operational genius" decides to shut down the prison while it still has prisoners in it.

During this period there are men dressed as Federal Marshals attempting a "high risk extraction" of two female prisoners to prevent them from going to a civilian prison. The film consists of Seagal/Austin and crew fighting in a prison maze against the bad guys. Seagal doesn't know if the women are in league with the bad guys or if the bad guys want them dead. It isn't hard for us to figure it out from their faces which show expressions. (Take note Steven, it's called acting!)

Early in the film Steven Seagal laughs, something I don't recall him doing in another movie. It made me laugh to watch it.

The plot is simple as most Seagal productions. There is plenty of killing, fighting, and blood. The picture appears to have been written more with Seagal in mind than Austin. I had expected more. Austin has done better films, and with Seagal it is hard to tell. This could have been one of his better productions. They need to write a part for Danny Trejo and make him the perennial bad guy. I smell sequel.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.
