review by
Mike Haberfelner

In the ongoing Ukraine conflict, the US have acquired the Ukraine for a couple of billion Dollar to have proper incentive to protect it against Russia. In front of that backdrop, two American agents, Carter (Lorenzo Pisoni) and Ross (Greg Hadley) break into a secret Russian base in the Ukraine to get their hands on some secret information - and somehow suddenly find themselves burdened with political prisoner Olivetti (Dylan Baker). Now Agent Ross is only in it for the action and the money, but Carter is an idealist, and when he has a hunch something about their operation smelled very off, he decides to investigate - but is caught and immediately discharged. Later that day, Senator Williams (Bradley Stryker) wants to publicly celebrate Olivetti's liberation, which is of course the humane face of the agents' operation - when Olivetti pulls a gun and shoots him dead, then makes an escape that seems to have been carefully planned ... and suddenly it's up to Carter to recapture him. Thing is, just like Carter, Olivetti is an idealist, and his intentions might be purer than Carter's ever were ...


A very nice espionage thriller that in its mere 45 minutes of running time manages to tell a multi-layered story while delivering on the action side of things in heaps, and making perfect use of its pittoresque Italian locations without turning them into picture postcard kitsch. Sure, some might complain that the film leaves its whole backstory to mere hints, but in a way not having everything explained away also works in the film's favour, adding to the actual ambiguity of the story. But that not withstanding, the film also works as a pure action piece, and in that department it's explosive as can be. A very cool ride for sure!
