Haunted by the mysterious death of his wife, reclusive former FBI manhunter Jeremiah Ecks is blackmailed back into service to track down an unstoppable ex-DIA operative, code-named Sever, who has kidnapped the young son of the head of a secret committee of international security agencies.
Action Adventure - This movie is nearly non-stop, fast paced action and much of it is
quite impressive. However, some of it is a little unrealistic and
overdone. The story is pretty minimal and the dialog is sometimes
difficult to understand. It's certainly a movie targeted at action
PROFANITY: 2 S-words and just a few milder words. SEX/NUDITY: None VIOLENCE: Lots of killing, nothing especially graphic or cruel. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: Nearly non-stop action, COMEDY: Just the occasional funny remark.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
This was not a well attended movie. We were only able to collect 64 opinions. Surprisingly the ladies enjoyed "Ballistic" a little more than the guys. This may be partly due to the fact the Lucy Lu get to kick some major male behind.
Most people enjoyed this movie, but an unusually large number didn't care much for it. The opinions are certainly worse than I thought they would be.
I would have to say that you really need to be careful choosing this movie. Chances are not very good that you will truly enjoy it.
As I stated in my prediction, this movie is only for action fans because there's not much to the story.
Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
This is a movie strictly for action fans and that's fine because that's the intended audience. The action is fast, cool and explosive, plus it's nearly non-stop and sometimes even unique. It is a bit unrealistic and unbelievable at times, but probably not something most will complain about.
Lucy Lu doesn't speak much but she gets to kick major butt. This movie may just help her to become a major action star.
If you're into cool action and lots of it, you won't want to miss "Ballistic."
In the deadly game of international espionage, elite, anonymous operatives
wage secret wars for power, information and national security. Agendas
are rarely what they seem.
Word has recently been circulating in these exclusive ranks of an ingenious
new assassination device. Microscopic and injectable, it lies dormant
inside its victim until activated and then kills in an instant, leaving no
In the frantic race to obtain this device, only two individuals, sworn
enemies, have the skill, talent and tenacity to succeed. One is an agent
known only by the code name Sever (LUCY LIU). Lethally trained to be the
perfect weapon, Sever is precise and relentless in her pursuit of a goal.
The other is the brilliant and determined former FBI man-hunter Jeremiah Ecks
Once preeminent in his field, Ecks resigned from the agency when his wife was
killed in an explosion that left him a guilt-ridden emotional shell of
himself. Now, forced back into service by his former mentor for the most
challenging assignment of his career, Ecks prepares to face off against agent
Sever, his most formidable foe.
In the fierce competition for this deadly prize there can only be one winner.
But when the rules change, these two dedicated adversaries find that the one they're trying to defeat might be
the only one they can trust.
