Brief Synopsis – A group of mercenaries are sent into darkest Africa in order to rescue a kidnapped girl by white slavers but end up getting in over their heads during the mission.
Bottom Line – Interesting idea that doesn’t work as well as one might hope. The cast of characters besides Megan Fox in the lead are relatively unknown and that helps make things feel a bit more realistic. This is an action film where it’s easy to turn off your brain for 90 minutes and watch things happen in a pretty predictable manner. The way that these characters need to deal with threats from both man and nature works well even if overall, this film has little to offer that is unique or innovative.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – 13 years after Megan Fox’s breakout role in Transformers. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
