(aka "Code 207" )

 

directed by Tino Struckmann
USA 2011

 

When Army ranger Mack (writer/director Tino Struckmann, RED ROSE OF NORMANDY) busts a sex trafficker ring (who deal in black market organs [sealed in sandwich baggies] on the side), ringleader Savage (Jack Dimich, DON'T LOOK UP) kidnaps Mack's wife Tiffany (Tiffany Anne Hughes) in retaliation for the death of his brother. Detective Altman (Cole Schaefer) - obviously corrupt an in cahoots with the kidnappers from his first close-up - is no help to him or Ruth (Connie Maynord) whose daughter Haley (Claudia Crawford) has also been nabbed. Mack tracks down the kidnappers and wages a one man war against the enemy. Struckmann and the various baddies he tussles with are certainly athletic, but the camera and editing coverage of the fights is laughable. The bad acting, cartoon character villains (although Dimich is entertainingly over-the-top), and laughable action (complete with CGI gunfire) would work for fans of the lovably dumb eighties and nineties DTV action flicks were if not for the impression that star/director Struckmann was taking it all seriously (and apparently trying to seriously address the sexual exploitation of women since a portion of the film's profits supposedly went to womens shelters and organizations).

Comments

MTI's single-layer, progressive, anamorphic transfer of this Super 16mm-lensed flick looks reasonably strong with good detail in close-ups (the film was probably telecined directly to HD for exhibition and distribution and never blown-up to 35mm). 5.1 and 2.0 downmixes are included (as well as English closed captioning). There are no extras other than the film's trailer and trailers for other MTI releases.
