Movie Summary

Director:
Steve Wang
Released:
1997
Rating:
R

Toby Wong is no ordinary fighter. Instead, he's a genetically engineered assassin, recently escaped from the criminal organization that made him into the killing machine he is. While on the lam and heading for the safety of Los Angeles, Toby winds up in a fight at a bar and takes a hostage for protection. The hostage is a writer, Malik Brody, who finds himself taken along for a wild and action-packed ride as Toby fights furiously against his many assailants. As the pair continue their dangerous journey, stalked the entire time by Vic, a fellow assassin determined to turn Toby in to the crime organization, they eventually meet an ally in the form of bubbly, feisty Deliverance Bodine. As Toby continues his fight for freedom, the action scenes become more and more intense and the outcome becomes more uncertain for Toby, Malik and Deliverance.
