Firefighter Gordon Brewer is plunged into the complex and dangerous world of international terrorism after he loses his wife and child in a bombing credited to Claudio "The Wolf" Perrini. Frustrated with the official investigation and haunted by the thought that the man responsible for murdering his family might never be brought to justice, Brewer takes matters into his own hands and tracks his quarry ultimately to Colombia.

Entertaining thriller, lots of stunts and a big twist at the end. From the bonus interviews, the film was conceived and completed prior to the events of September 11th but delayed its release until 2002. The heroic revenge actions of Arnold's character aside, it brought out the complex issues with our war in terrorism in the era and unfortunately contemporary "terrorism" has become more brutal though root cause seemed to be similar.

Fairly entertaining. Not Arnold's best.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Someone in your caravan was a target.
-Terrorism. Everyone's a target.

Latin American Solidarity Committee... a group sympathetic to the Army of Colombian Liberation. Sir, you've characterized the ALC as freedom fighters.
Isn't the bombing here just a brutal act of terrorism?
-The Wolf brought to the U.S. what the U.S. brought to Colombia.
The killing of innocent people like Anne and Matt Brewer is terrorism.
-Their deaths are regrettable. It's called collateral damage.
===
Collateral damage? I'll give you collateral damage.
===
Peace talks will be arranged between Colombia and the guerrillas.

===
Why call them Senate intelligence hearings? They're all imbeciles.

As long as America continues its aggression in Colombia... we will bring the war home to you. And you will not feel safe in your own beds. Colombia is not your country. Get out now. Sangre o libertad (Blood or liberty in Spanish.)
===
Brandt. I was your excuse to kill all these people.
-You're here to murder a man, right? I'm trying to save a country. Keep poison off our streets.
By killing innocents?
-I fight terrorists with terror.
===
Why? You think you're the only ones who can fight for independence.
-Independence to do what? To kill my wife and my son?
I remember your face from Los Angeles. That was the face of a man who saved lives. Well, your face has changed. You think your wife and son would recognize you now?
-I remember your face too. The smile... just before you killed them. You're gonna pay for that. You're gonna pay for that.
Well, it seems we're both willing to kill for a cause... so, what's the difference
between you and I?
-The difference is... l'm just gonna kill you.
