The secret of easily refining weapons-grade nuclear material has fallen into evil hands.

A fast-paced but ultimately unsatisfying movie; not worthy of the name or a sequel.

A super-soldier program goes awry when some of its team begin to remember their past.

Quite a good movie. Even though it's old, it holds up well enough even with in-movie technology changes.
