The Detonator (2006)

 The Detonator (2006) -* *

Directed By: Po-Chih Leong

Starring: Wesley Snipes and Silvia Colloca

Poor Wesley Trent Snipes. He can't catch a break. With his recent tax troubles and movie career down the drain, all he can do is make cheap Romanian action movies. If all the action stars (Seagal, Snipes, Lundgren, and Van Damme) are in Romania, when are they gonna team up and make the ultimate action flick?

In The Detonator, Snipes plays Sonnie Griffith, a secret agent whose newest job is to protect Nadia Cominski (Colloca) from gangsters and corrupt police. That's it. The action scenes are entertaining but once again Snipes looks disinterested in the proceedings. Silvia Colloca was hired to look sexy and she does it well. The biggest problem is the laziness brought onboard by Wesley: He doesn't care, and he took the Seagal route and dubbed his voice. Half of the time it doesn't sound like Snipes, just a poor impersonator. Hey, on the bright side, at least we're boosting Romania's economy.

Overall, it's a decent one time watch, but I think it's a step down from 7 Seconds (2005) and Unstoppable (2004)
