CIA operative is forced to take on
his own crack team single-handed
when they go rogue, killing his mentor
and leaving him slap bang in the
middle of a Game Of Death...
AMONG THE CIA'S FINEST AGENTS, Marcus Jones (the superb Wesley Snipes),
Zander (kickboxing champion Gary Daniels: The Expendables) and Floria
(award-winning stuntwoman Zoe Bell: Kill Bill Volumes 1 & 2; Television's
Xena: Warrior Princess) are colleagues inseparable friends
who would give their lives for each other and for their country. Until they
are given a mission that sees some of the team giving in to temptation.
The principled Marcus is in charge of the mission to get close to arms dealer
Frank Smith (Robert Davi) as his bodyguard in order to infiltrate the corrupt
Redvale Corporation in Detroit. John Redvale (Quinn Duffy) has committed hundreds
of millions to oil exploration in Africa and bankrolls Smith to supply arms
to rebels to undermine any governments who stand in his way.
The object of the CIA's mission is altered as some team members see the opportunity
to gain access to millions of dollars in cash. When Smith has a heart attack,
Marcus saves his life and rushes him to Detroit Receiving Hospital, where he
is attended in ICU by a female doctor, Rachel (Aunjanue Ellis: The Taking
Of Pelham 1 2 3; Television's The Mentalist).
But armed and dangerous CIA agents gone bad have burst into the hospital and
are intent on forcing Smith to take them to Redvale. Leaving a trail of bodies
in their wake, Marcus's once-trusted friends have set him up and he is now wanted
for robbery and murder.
Can Marcus get to Redvale in time to prevent more deaths and to clear his name?
He will have to go against the very people he had counted as friends and allies
as he tries to deal with the death of his mentor Dietrich, who was like a father
to him, the betrayal of his team and the disintegration of everything he believed
Losing is not an option. Marcus will go in hard and fast, but there is one thing
he cannot ignore: Rachel has been taken at gunpoint along with Smith and she
is in grave danger. Game Of Death is a tense and exciting movie reminiscent
of the go-get-'em style of Steven Seagal with tremendous gung-ho fight scenes.
