Steven Seagal stars as mob kingpin Mr. Alexander, an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality. But when a simple prison hit goes wrong, hell ignite a war between a cold-blooded gangster known as "The Iceman" (Ving Rhames of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and PULP FICTION), a disgraced former protégé (Taekwondo World Champion Bren Foster of FIGHT SCIENCE), a merciless Mexican cartel, and an ex-con shopkeeper Danny Trejo of MACHETE KILLS) with some unexpected skills of his own. The lines are drawn. The fuse is lit. And in a citywide massacre measured in pain, fear, honor and vengeance, the ultimate power belongs to the FORCE OF EXECUTION.
