Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever
Antonio Banderas stars as special FBI agent Jeremiah Ecks. Lucy Liu is renegade DIA agent Sever. When Sever kidnaps the son of DIA director Robert Gant (Gregg Henry), it attracts the attention of Ecks’ boss. But Ecks doesn’t want to help until he learns that Vinn (Talisa Soto), the wife he thought had died in an explosion, is alive and Sever knows where she is. But Gant and his right hand agent, Ross (Ray Parks), seem intent on getting rid of Sever. And Sever seems to have a personal interest in Gant. Ecks must sort out the good guys from the bad guys as Gant includes him in the target zone and Sever alternately beats and saves him.
Action fans will enjoy the non-stop display of high-powered weapons, martial arts moves, and fiery explosions. In fact, the violence alone was enough to earn the R rating. Although it has virtually no sexual content and limited foul language, continuous and often graphic violence is exploited and poses as entertainment in “Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.”
