Mercenary John Seeger (Steven Seagal) is the best in the business. Seeger and his crew are battling soldiers at the French-controlled Galmoral Island in Southern Africa as they're trying to hold the French Ambassador (Rudiger Eberle) and his family hostage while there's a coup going on.
John gets steamed when some of his soldiers blow up the Ambassador and his family, blowing the mission and getting his best friend Radio Jones (Zaa Nkweta) killed.
John heads back to the U.S.A. and goes to the home of Radio's wife Shondra (Faye Peters), tells her the news, and then promises her that he'll take care of her and her young son Eddie (Tumi Mogoje).
Shortly after he makes that vow however, Shondra and Eddie get kidnapped. They were kidnapped by a CIA faction led by CIA dirty deeds man John Dresham (Luke Goss) and his boss, CIA Black Ops producer Anthony Chapel (Roger Guenveur Smith), who want to use them to force John into doing a mission for them.
Kamal Dasan, the son of prominent gun runner Ahmet Dasan (Peter Butler[disambiguation needed]), has been arrested and thrown into the Randveld Prison outside of Cape Town, South Africa, so John must go there and break Kamal out of prison if John wants to see Shondra and Eddie alive again.
What they don't tell John is that there's an ulterior motive at work, and that they intend to use John as a patsy in their plan to rip off a highly secured African bank, and they don't care who gets killed in the process. And it turns out that the whole thing on the island was a screw-job engineered by Dresham and Chapel.
After John and his crew break Kamal out and stop the robbery at the bank, John sets out to rescue Shondra and Eddie from Dresham and Chapel.
