Swedish agent Carl Hamilton and Finnish Åke Stålhandske are ordered to stop Russian smugglers. The smuggled goods is a nuclear missile. It's an SS 20, 1,5 megatons, "enough to turn Paris, Washington or New York to ashes". The American villain is Mike Hawkins.Written by
During the opening credits, several of the men in snow camouflage have impulse amplifiers on their assault rifles. Impulse amplifier is a device used with certain types of training ammo to ensure the gun keeps working, and also to crush the wooden practice "bullet" into harmless sawdust. It blocks the barrel of a gun, making it unable to fire live ammo when in use (and is thus used as a safety measure in non-live fire exercises). Russian soldiers guarding a nuclear weapon storage would most definitely not have training ammo in their guns. See more »
Sweden production plenty of action , suspense and Swedish /American actors
This Sweden-Norway co-production begins when Carl Hamilton (Peter Stormare) is assigned the dangerous mission to chase Russian gunrunners . Hamilton reunites a command formed by five tough soldiers . They are parachuted into Russian tundra where meet the smugglers and a nuclear missile SS,20, 1,5 megatons . It leads to Mursmank (Russian), there resides Hawkins (Mark Hamill), he formerly served in Vietnam and Fertile Crescent, today is a cunning manager whose 11 employees were the smugglers . Then , Hamilton goes to Lybian desert where encounters the baddies's base . Meanwhile , his wife (Lena Olin) is kidnapped in his mansion of Stenhara but Hamilton goes on the attack on the headquarter .
The film displays suspense , action-packed , thriller , violence and is quite entertaining . The highlights of the film are the impressive beginning with creepy execution including gore and a breathtaking final attack with fighting , pursuits and explosions . The base took several months to build and nearly 60,000 $ worth of damage was done when it was blown apart . This is an adaptation from TV series about Carl Hamilton and his assignments for Swedish government , filmed with high budget and Swedish players , such as Peter Stormare (Prison break , Fargo) , an usual nasty here turned into a cold action hero , American actors as Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as an exaggerated villain and Terry Carter (Galactica) ; furthermore a gorgeous Swedish , Lena Olin (Ninth gate, Chocolat, Unbearable lightness of being ). Rating : Entertaining and well worth watching.
