Storyline

Professional mercenary Karl Thomasson, his friend Macy, and an albanian girl are being held in a brutal Kosovo prison where Macy is severely beaten. Just before he dies, Macy gives Karl a medal to give to Macy's daughter Nicole Stewart, who is a professor of english at Eastern Atlantic University on Long Island in New York. Karl and the Albanian girl then escape, and Karl kills their two captors. Three months later, Karl shows up at the university and visits Nicole, who is reluctant to accept Macy's medal because due to his military obligations, Macy was out of Nicole's life more than he was in it. Soon after Karl visits Nicole, she is brutally beaten up. When Karl hears of this, he has his friends Ed Lincoln and Rahmel help him take over as Nicole's substitute under a false name, then Karl brings another mercenary friend named Andy in on the investigation of the beating so Andy can work with Karl, Ed, and Rahmel. Karl believes it was a member of the football team who did it then he ... Written by Todd Baldridge <sandib@mis.net>

**1/2 out of 5
6 August 2002 | by casey_choas66See all my reviews

It seems that every other movie in this series is bad, I guess that means we will have to wait for a fourth outing to get any entertainment. Treat Williams returns in the third installment of the series that again has nothing to do with the previous two. It's the same basic story except this time Williams discovers that the school is giving their athletes steroids. Again there is lots of unnecessary violence and this time filmmakers are throwing in some gratutious nudity to go along with it. I sure hope the next one is better.
