The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

Jeremiah Ecks is a grungy-looking retired FBI agent still distraught over the death of his wife Vinn who was killed in a car explosion several years ago. Ecks hears again from his former boss Julio Martin but he is not interested in joining back with the team anymore. But Martin informed Ecks that his wife is not dead after all, but withhold more information until the former agent investigate about a special device in the hands of Robert Gant. Ecks also has to find out who is behind the kidnapping of Gant's son Michael. Robert Gant aka Agent Clark is head of DIA government and husband of Ecks supposedly deceased wife!

Ex agent Sever is the kidnapper of Gant's son. A former assassin/operative once worked for Gants' shady DIA agency that created a deadly microscopic device that is injected in the human body; making one believe a person died of a heart attack and not a assassination.
Though Gant has the destructable tool in his possession, Sever wants it for her own personal reasons. She will give the boy back to his mother only for the exchange for Gant, as she wants him dead after his involvement in the tragic death of her family.

Meanwhile Jeremiah along with his partner Henry Lee finally tracked Sever. The two disdain agents now face each other. Among their fighting to destroy the other, Ecks and Sever realized they are not exactly enemies. Jeremiah learns that Sever knows more than she does about his wife whereabouts. Ecks and Severs both make peace with each other; now they are after the same person- Robert Gant.
