The Ross brothers Roman (Frank Grillo) and Ricci (Matt Passmore) are considered philanthropists by the general public, what with their slew of inventions to help the disabled. But of course, their philanthropism only goes so far, and presently they're planning a terrorist attack on the Hoover Dam that might make them a heap of money. The CIA of course have long learned about this and have one of their agents, Subir Shen (Kolten Jensen) infiltrate the organisation - but Subir got caless. and killed for it, too. And since he was of Bangladeshi origin, it's decided to replace him with an actual agent from the Bangladeshi secret service, Masud Rana (Abm Sumon), who, accompanied by mystery woman Devi (Sakshi Pradhan), gets into one fistfight, shoot-out and chase after another to prevent the worst from happening ...


The character Masud Rana was created in 1966 by Bangladeshi writer Qazi Anwar Husain, as a very direct response to the success of James Bond, so it shouldn't come as a surprise at all that this movie (not the first one based on the Masud Rana novels by the way) has a certain James Bond-feel to it. And despite it not nearly being at the same level as its big brother, budget-wise, MR-9: Do or Die really delivers, there's plenty of action, all well executed, the pacing is almost frantic, as the material demands, and as a whole, the film hardly puts a food wrong, making this one pretty amazing spy thriller entertainment for sure.
