3.0 out of 5 stars WHERE IS SHE?
Lex Walker (Craig Fairbrass) is a British mercenary. When he is not killing his second love is Jack Daniels followed by his semi-estranged daughter Samantha (Melissa Ordway). Lex must leave his job to fly to LA (the LA that looks like Baton Rouge where the film was shot) and identify the body of his daughter. Except it is not her!!! Craig Fairbrass stars in this film...

Lex Walker (Craig Fairbrass) is a British mercenary. When he is not killing his second love is Jack Daniels followed by his semi-estranged daughter Samantha (Melissa Ordway). Lex must leave his job to fly to LA (the LA that looks like Baton Rouge where the film was shot) and identify the body of his daughter. Except it is not her!!! Craig Fairbrass stars in this film because Liam Neeson has already done one.

James Caan is in the film, so we know who plays the bad guy and how this ends. The only mystery is what is the daughter into (explained about an hour into the film) and how many people get killed/beat up in the process.

The DVD box description claims Lex works with a detective (Jason Patric) to find his daughter. That is a bit of a stretch, as the two never work side by side. He is instead helped by a bar waitress (Shannon Elizabeth) who he over tipped.

James Caan had to use some carefully orchestrated tough guys moves as it looks like he has been propped up aka "Weekend at Bernies." I had to laugh as he carefully punched some huge steroid freak and doubled him over.

The film okay for those who need something to pass the time. Clearly formulaic and doesn't create intensity. A bit on the Seagal campy side.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well well well, 8 May 2014

This review is from: Outsider [DVD] (DVD)
What starts off as a simple cross between Taken and the Limey plods on beneath a very familiar screenplay until the forty minute mark where it morphs into a heist caper and actually becomes dangerously close to interesting. The movie is peppered with fights and gunplay as Fairbrass leaves his job as a military contractor to reclaim the body of his deceased daughter. Realising that his daughter isn't the one on the slab, he starts cracking skulls to get to the truth. Fairbrass makes for a decent leading man, yes he's saddled with some poor dialogue but he's watchable enough. The production doesn't stretch beyond that of a TV movie apart from the surprising casting of Jason Patric and James Caan, neither of whom are required to do much. Reportedly made for $4 Million this isn't the film to make Fairbrass a star but it ends well enough. As undemanding entertainment goes, I've seen a whole lot worse. I freely admit, I've seen some crap.

Not too bad, but thought Craig Fairbrass was a little too " in you face". Quality of film could have been a little better.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice bit of brute force action as you'd expect from ..., 18 July 2014
This review is from: The Outsider (DVD)
Nothing out of the ordinary, unexpectedly Fairbrass makes a decent Lead, the storyline is engaging enough with a couple of twists to keep you connected, nice bit of brute force action as you'd expect from a Film of this genre, definitely no Blockbuster but considering its Budget, well worth a watch
