David Mamet thriller about an experienced and lethally efficient spy (Val Kilmer) who's teamed up with a special ops novice (Derek Luke) and assigned to find the kidnapped daughter of a high ranking government official. The two men soon suspect that the young woman was kidnapped by a white slavery ring, but as their investigation progresses it becomes obvious that the circumstances surrounding the abduction are far more complex and there is a dangerous conspiracy that may involve the highest political levels. Also with Tia Texada, Ed O'Neill, Kristen Bell and Alexandra Kerry. [1:46]
SEX/NUDITY 5 - A young woman takes off her top in front of a man (trying to convince him to let her smoke). A woman changes her clothes and we see her in a bra and panties. We hear about a nightclub where young women are bought for sex with older men. Two men talk about the sex slave trade (they are all young and blonde, etc.) and one man offers a woman to the other man ("you shall have her tonight"). We hear that a man has gone "tomcatting" and has been unfaithful to his wife. We meet a woman who runs an "escort service." We hear that a young woman has been sold into sex slavery. We hear that the naked bodies of a man and a woman have washed up on shore. A man talks about his ex-girlfriend having an affair with an older professor of hers. A man carries a vial of Ruffies (the date rape drug).
VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A man with a gun drawn goes into a house and another man waits outside with his gun trained on the house: the man inside shoots two men inside the house (one man lies on the floor gagging with blood trickling from his mouth) and the man who's outside shoots one man. A man is shot, blood sprays in the air and soaks the grass around him where he lays motionless, another man is shot in the back (it turns out to be a scarecrow in a man's jacket). Two men shoot many men, and one of them is shot in the chest. One man grabs a young woman (she screams and cries), shoves her in a car and the car races away. A man shoots a man who flips back and falls on the ground, and a man shoots a man whom we see dead on the ground with blood on his clothing. A man is shot in the chest and falls back onto the ground (we see a large bloody hole in his chest and blood on his clothes), and another man is grazed on the neck (we see a bloody wound). A man and a young woman run through an airport hangar while being chased by men in a car. A man is shot and trails blood along the floor, a woman is shot in the back (we see her die from her wounds later), and a man is cut in the throat (we see blood burbling out of the wound and he falls dead). We hear a gun shot, see a man lying dead on the floor with blood pooling around his head, and then see a hole in his temple (we hear that he committed suicide). We hear that a man and a woman have drowned at sea and see bodies being carried in body bags. Two men are ordered to fight until one man is left standing: we hear blows exchanged and grunts but see nothing. A man punches another man hard in the face (we see blood spray from his mouth and nose as he falls onto the floor). A man punches a man and slams him into a wall (we see bloody scratches on his cheek), he punches him in the stomach, shoves him into the side of a dumpster, and breaks his arm (we hear crack). A man holds another man and draws a knife toward his eye after being told by the first man to cut his eye out (the man screams and whimpers and nothing else happens). A man grabs a woman and shakes her, then shoves her down into a chair. A man punches a young woman in the stomach. A woman in fatigues runs frantically through woods followed by two men, the two men veer off, then another man appears and chases her (it's apparently a military training exercise). A man talks about being "shelled in the open." We hear about the king of Sparta sending just one man when asked for help by a neighboring king. We see scars on a man's back (apparently battle wounds). A young woman vomits.
