A DANGEROUS MAN
Ex-soldier Shane Daniels (Steven Seagal) is angry. He just spent six years in prison for a crime he didn't commit and lost his wife during the stretch. Then things get even worse, as Shane gets involved in a shootout with the Chinese mob. During the gunfight, he saves the life of Sergey (Jesse Hutch), the son of a Russian mobster, and finds stolen money and a kidnapped girl, Tia (Marlaina Mah). Now he's on the run, surrounded by violent cops and crime lords. But he's certainly up for the fight.
A psychopathic killer is ravaging Memphis, Tenn., by murdering young women, and Detective Jacob Stillwell (Steven Seagal) is on the case. Known as the resident tough cop due to his aggressive tactics, he gets knocked sideways when his girlfriend becomes one of the murder victims. With his partner, Storm Anderson (Chris Thomas King), in tow, Jacob casts the rules aside and infiltrates the seedy criminal underworld of the city looking to avenge his lover's death and put an end to the killings.
As punishment for participating in a vigilante relief effort, Maj.

While the president addresses veterans at a Chicago hotel, a terrorist group assaults Cross and steals the codes. Cross struggles to redeem himself -- even as the terrorists threaten to launch a nuclear missile unless the president shoots himself in the head on national television.
