The militia retaliates by releasing a killer virus into the air, sickening most of the local residents -- but not Dr. Wesley McClaren (Steven Seagal) or his daughter, Holly (Gailard Sartain). It seems that Holly is immune to the virus. As McClaren races to find a cure, militia leader Floyd Chisolm (L.Q. Jones) attempts to kidnap Holly so that his group can make an antitoxin.

      William D One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/27/23 Full Review Carlos T Minha opinião: É a faze onde os grandes filmes deles começam a cair. Este filme é razoável, tanto que aqui não há tantas cenas de lutas, usa mais armas e o lado de dr. Imunologista. Onde um grupo fanático de uma cidezinha dos EUA quer dar uma lição nos EUA. Onde o próprio líder é o agente de propagação. O difícil que ele sendo agente, o vírus teve mutação e o antidoto, não funciona mais. Assim Seagal tem que lutar para encontrar a cura. E Eliminar este fanáticos caipiras. Nisso ele percebe que sua filha tem os anticorpos, e os bandidos também a querem. Como disse um filme diferente para Seagal que aqui usa mais as armas. Roteiro e enredo mais ou menos. Vale apena assistir? Se não tiver outra alternativa Nota: 5 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/28/23 Full Review william d Okay movie I would recommend watching it once but no need to watch it again after the first time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is so stupid and bad, but thinking back watching it on a 19 hour flight was awesome as fuck! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Matthew D I don't like this movie, but in a way I have to admire it. Seagal tried something different and seemed passionate about the project. In fact, this could have been the last movie that he actually cared about. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/30/21 Full Review Audience Member It's ironic that I have this movie on DVD and I had seen the unrelated Mel Gibson movie of the same name on Netflix when I'd have preferred to own THAT movie on DVD. And it's not a case of mistaken identity on my part because I knew that Mel Gibson was in a movie called The Patriot. Yeah, this movie sucks so badly. Mostly because of how boring it is, with action being very sparse. Shame because the action looks decent, though not boasting anything that makes it stand out. It doesn't help that the movie's really short at just 90 minutes, making the movie feel like it ended somewhat abruptly. Also, as somebody who's never seen a Steven Seagal movie before, the guy kinda sucks at acting, especially when you place him next to people who seem to be taking their job seriously. I will admit the production values look impressive for a DTV movie, though that's mostly owing to the fact that it was meant to be a theatrical release before cancelling those plans. Oh, and the director was an Academy Award-winning cinematographer. That helps too. But let's face it, the late '90s movie called The Patriot is so damn boring and uninteresting that you're better off watching the unrelated movie revolving around the American Revolutionary War from the director of Independence Day.

      Mike Massie Gone With The Twins This particular hybrid story doesn't work well with Seagal's brand of action, even if it contains realistic notes on both right-wing terrorists and biochemical disasters. Rated: 3/10 Dec 7, 2020 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com Steven Seagal as a Montana doctor with a strange accent. Yes, it is as laughable as it sounds. Rated: 0/4 Nov 15, 2009 Full Review Caffeinated Clint Moviehole One of Seagal's better movies - shows his versatility Rated: 3/5 Sep 5, 2008 Full Review Chuck O'Leary Fantastica Daily Rated: 1/5 Jul 29, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 1/5 Dec 8, 2004 Full Review Dragan Antulov rec.arts.movies.reviews Rated: 5/10 Oct 5, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews
