Movie: Eleventh Hour (08)

Hm. If this were made for tv it would have been middling, but this is apparently a feature film. Not so bad for mindless “action” movie tripe. IMDb contributor kidtuffy summed it up (and the movie is nowhere near worth even retyping anything about it so … kidtuffy says:

An ex-Navy SEAL, Michael Adams, (Matthew Reese) was captured during a raid to free Japanese prisoners from a North Korean prison camp. He endures the North Koreans torture for three years — seen only as flashbacks — then released back into civilian life. A renegade North Korean General wants revenge for the raid on his camp, he follows Adams back to the United States with a plot to manipulate the former soldier into assassinating the leader of the raid, now a United States senator, Mason Chambers (K. Danor Gerald). The General targets Adams’ estranged wife, Rachel (Jennifer Klekas) has her attacked so a doctor on the North Koreans payroll can insert a bomb into her head. Then Adam is captured, given the assignment and warned he must assassinate the senator within 12 hours or the bomb will detonate.

I wasn’t even particularly engaged enough to notice what the eleventh hour might be … it didn’t seem to have anything to do with anything. Thanks to that synopsis, I’m enlightened. What a stupid ending though. You are warned.
