Mario Van Peebles and James Remar star in this action drama in which a police detective learns that a murderer he helped put behind bars has been released from prison. The CIA recruited the felon to work as a hired killer for the federal government, but his superiors dangerously underestimated his enthusiasm for this work; the murderer breaks free from custody while in training and goes on a remorseless killing spree, with the detective being one of the only men who knows how to stop him.
