soon as the technology is in his possession, The Pardoner needs the code from
Eva's father to fully activate it. He holds Eva hostage, expecting her father
to give himself up to him to save his daughter; but he has not reckoned on the
crack team of former soldiers Chalmers worked with in the past and now has backing

Zindel (World Wrestling Entertainment star Natalie Eva Marie), her brother Harrison
(Jon Galanis), security expert Derek Miller (Jesse Metcalfe), and Dash Hawkins
(Swen Temmel) to join him in taking on the terrorists.
In a disused, derelict warehouse complex, Derek has Chalmers safely in a locked
room warning him not to open the door for anyone but Chalmers is not
used to taking orders and his beloved daughter has become aware how naïve she
has been for not realising The Pardoner has another agenda.
It falls to Miller, Fox and the elite team of mercenaries to take on The Pardoner

training and adaptability of Miller's team can save Chalmers and his daughter.
A little clichéd, yes, and it has all been done before: but never fear because
Bruce is here. His mercenaries have to save the world and save the girl. Miller

the stops to ensure he uses the technology to serve his own shocking ends.

thrills and, of course, the continuing presence of a Hollywood scene-stealer.
