George Seagal plays a murderous, crooked, LAPD detective lieutenant, who wants Wellman Santee (played by Dolph Lundten) dead or at least back in prison, because Santee who is a career criminal, but he could put Lieutenant Severance (played by George Seagal) in prison for his murders and other crimes. Kristian Alfonso is a LAPD patrol officer who just happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time (so to speak) and gets taken hostage by Santee.

I gotta admit, Joshua Tree or Army of One and this movie for some reason has two titles depending on how you see it, or what network it is on, but this movie is not a very good movie. Sure it has a decent car chase and there are some pretty good action scenes and perhaps I’m just not much of a Dolph Lundgren who is mostly famous for Rocky 4, ( sorry, I’m horrible with Roman numerals) fan. But this movie is worth watching for other reasons. George Seagal is his usual smart-ass funny self. And Kristian Alfonso plays a great sexy tough cop, looking for her big case.

Dolph Lundgren plays an escape convict who of course is innocent of why he was put in prison. But he’s hardly innocent of much else and gets a break and manages to escape from prison when their bus breaks down. He is a career criminal and learns that his best friend and partner has been murdered by the crooked cop, sergeant or lieutenant that put him away played by George Segal. So while he’s out of prison he’s on the run and kidnaps a rookie or somewhat inexperienced police officer played by Kristian Alfonso who it out of uniform and steals her pickup with her in it.

They are on the run together because he doesn’t want to go back to prison and has her as her hostage. He won’t hurt her though if she doesn’t give him any reason to. She later takes his side even after attempting to escape from him and gets ditched by him in the desert when he believes he doesn’t need her anymore. But she now believes that he’s innocent of why he was put in prison and that the crooked cop and his crew are the bad guys here and does what she can to help him as a cop.

Not a good movie except for a few parts, but Kristian Alfonso simply looked great in it. The hot sexy baby version of Kristian that I wish she brought out more on Days of Our Lives is the Kristian we see in this movie. And she looks great and adorable kicking ass in her classic Levis denim jeans and boots and plays a hot, sexy cop that I can’t imagine any man his right mind would want to ditch. And she and Dolph save the day sort of and the bad guy and gal put away some bad cops.
