Along the way, he makes friends with local man, Sok (Sereyvuth Kem), and romances Sophie (Natascha McElhone).

Worst film ever? by NBoeger March 22, 2006 - 10:58 AM PST

What can I say other than this is a serious ego trip for Matt Dillion. The story made no sense and was trying to be overly smart (oohh gotcha!). Matt Dillion comes out the honest thief who just wants to do the right thing. Well how about not being a crook? Its pure fantasy that only flatters his ego. Nothing about the story is original. Its full of stereotypes and flashy nonsense. Russian gangsters after some mob man in Cambodia? Are you serious? A midnight run across the Thia - Cambodian border. Wow, Matt how international and sophisticated of you. The only thing good about this movie was that Matt got a serious case of dysentery when he was in Cambodia.
