Product Description

Christian Slater stars in this espionage thriller as a former agent on the trail of a vigilante hitman. When terrorists on America's most-wanted list start being eliminated by an unknown killer, American ambassador Ashdown (Donald Sutherland) enlists the help of ex-FBI agent Biggs (Slater) to trace the assassin's identity before there's an international incident. But with the clock ticking, the body count rising, and his investigation stalling, Biggs soon finds himself being drawn into a deadly game of cat and mouse against a ruthlessly efficient opponent.

1.0 out of 5 stars NO WITNESSES, 31 May 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Not being satisfied with killing the western genre, Christian Slater turns his sights on spy thrillers. Slater plays a former FBI official who now works at the US embassy in Sofia, Bulgaria. There is a vigilante assassin of "bad" Muslims that for some reason is a problem. We get to see that the killer is a dark haired woman.

In order to get Christian Slater back into the FBI business, the film incorporates the acting of Donald Sutherland, Hollywood's go-to guy for black ops since "JFK." In addition to the killings, the movie centers around Slater's obsession with a red headed belly dancer and a psychologist talking to a blond woman who teaches English.

The film gives you clues and key plot points almost in a manner of "Student Bodies" with a big arrow and the word "clue" by it. The camera will zoom in and pause to let us know the director thinks his audience is composed of idiots. Slater was unconvincing. Elika Portnoy was boring. This is not an action thriller, but a poorly developed drama/mystery.

On the plus side we did get to see some of the old architecture of Bulgaria.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, no nudity, minor bed scene.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter drivel 12 Sep 2012
By MsT
Format:DVD
If Amazon didn't require at least 20 words I wouldn't expend that much energy on the most appalling film I've seen in years. I only write this to spare others the agony and wasted money from investing in this film. If they'd replaced the female lead with a cardboard cutout no-one would have noticed. I can only think that the A-list actors involved were either suffering from failed financial investments, or were paid an exhorbitant amount to agree to participate - frankly still a bad decision.

2.0 out of 5 stars very poor acting 11 Jun 2013
Format:DVD
As the others have pointed out , considering there are very well known actors in this the film is 'awful' the reason you cant find it on imdb is because the film had a different name it was called assassins bullet

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and talent 12 Oct 2012
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The best thing about this film was the scenery as it was shot in Sofia, a city I am unlikely to visit. I can only imagine that is the same reason that Donald Sutherland and Timothy Spall are in it, a paid trip to Bulgaria. Christian Slater has I assume just been condemned to B movie purgatory.
Simple enough plot, 'exemplary' but washed up FBI agent assigned to the US embassy is asked to investigate an assassin who is doing the world a favour and taking out Islamic terrorists who seem to abound in Bulgaria. Oddly enough his contact at a local school, the assassin and a belly dancer with whom he falls in love all seem to have the same tattoo, could there be a link? If there is he doesn't spot it as he almost cracks the case on something entirely different.
Talking of belly dancers, they obviously got a good rate at the bar where he encounters her as so many scenes were shot there.
You know where this is going, save your money and give this a miss. At least I got it for free, I won't get back the ninety minutes I wasted watching it.

1.0 out of 5 stars According to imdb.co this film does not exist 9 Sep 2012
By SilQ
Format:DVD
I've looked on imdb.com for some info reg. this film and it's not in their database. Also, its not in Christian Slater or Donald Sutherland page. I find that very odd, considering both are big names and have films lined up until 2015. Something's not quite right here...
