Rookie CIA agent Weston (Reynolds) is caretaking a safe house in South Africa when spook-turned-fugitive Frost (Washington) turns up carrying dangerous secrets. Assassins and mayhem follow. It doesn't always make sense but Espinosa directs in muscular style, with a cracking car chase and some fine acting. A weak ending lets it down.
