Michael Jai White will have you sitting on the edge of your set in this action packed film. It takes place on a set in the slums of Brazil, as White showcase his outstanding martial arts ability as he play the super hero.
White’s character, John “Falcon” Chapman, is the latest in a long line of emotionally scarred action heroes, in this case an ex-Marine suffering from frequent PTSD flashbacks who in the film’s opening minutes plays a game of Russian Roulette (with bullets soaked in a shot glass filled with whiskey, no less). Happening on a robbery in a liquor store, as is the all too frequent occurrence in these sorts of vehicles, he taunts one of the thugs by grabbing his shotgun and putting it in his mouth before quickly dispatching him.
His sister Cindy (Laila Ali, Muhammad Ali’s daughter was brutally beaten by thugs of in the slum area and left for dead at the bottom of the beach. She played a social worker and through the rest of the movie she was bed ridden and at time non responsive. White, at this time tracked down the bad guys as they worked in conjunction with the local street cops who were as full of corruption as they operated a sex-trafficking ring comprised of young girls. This is one movie you don’t want to miss out on. If you like good fight scenes, well then you have it here!
