Overview
The unrelenting action and unforgettable drama of Antoine Fugua's original masterwork is now even more powerful in this Director's Extended Cut. Following a dangerous covert assignment, veteran Navy SEAL Lt. A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) and his elite Special Ops team are immediately dispatched to war-torn Nigeria to evacuate Dr. Lena Kendricks (Monica Bellucci), a U.S. citizen who runs an international relief services hospital. But when the beautiful physician refuses to abandon the people in her care, Waters is forced to choose between following his captain's orders and the dictates of his own conscience. After agreeing to shepherd the refugees to safety, the group embarks on a deadly journey through the treacerous jungle - pursued every moment by rebel militia forces bent on executing every man, woman and child.
