A washed-up game hunter transports a white jaguar on a cargo ship also carrying an assassin to the US for trial. Contrived but fun – though perhaps surprisingly modest – high concept Die Hard-meets-Red Dragon-meets-Con Air-ish DTV thriller with a great slumming cast, some decent CG work, and a couple of OK plot wrinkles.

There’s a lot of plot going on, though they don’t make that much of the white jaguar on the loose aspect of it. I imagine that’s a CG-saving measure as much as anything. Fun while it’son tho. Poor old Famke Jannsen doesn’t have much to do, though, and it looks as though she’s recently had some ill-advised plastic surgery.
Poor old Onatopp…
