Belly of the Beast

Synopsis: Ten years ago, Jake Hopper was a CIA agent who was stationed in Thailand. Then one day, things went sour, and his partner, Sunti barely escaped with his life...after accidentally killing a woman. Jake called it quits and returned to the United States when his wife died, and Sunti became a Buddhist monk to atone for his sins. For the past 10 years, Jake has run a successful private security business, and has been raising his daughter Jessica, who is now an adult. While hiking in Thailand, Jessica and her friend Sarah Winthorpe are kidnapped. A group of Islamic fundamentalists known as the Abu Karaf claims responsibility. Sarah is the daughter of United States senator John Winthorpe. For ransom, the Abu Karaf demand the release of 20 prisoners from American custody. The US Secretary of State urges restraint -- he won't negotiate. Tom Collins, an ex-colleague of Jake's, recognizes Jessica on the ransom tape and tips Jake off. Jake knows that he must rescue the girls himself. An old CIA bu

We must resolve this without harm to

the girls or the reputation of the U.S.

We agree fully.

That's why I'm putting

Agent Washington in charge.

He's been operating

in the area for four years...

...and is more than qualified

for the job.

- Leon?

- Thank you, sir.

The first picture you have there

is the current head of the Abu Karaf.

Name's Mongkol.

Since he took over...

...they've become more hostile

towards the government.

The usual stuff.

Ambushing police patrols,

small rudimentary bombs.

- Anything like this before?

- Nothing, sir.

- Where's their money from?

- Arms, mainly.

- What about this Hopper guy?

- He's a good man, sir.

It's a damn shame his daughter's

caught up in this.

Tom, didn't you work with him?

I trained under him for two years

in Southeast Asia.

- He's been out for 10 years, though.

- Where is he?

He left Honolulu four hours ago.

Lands in Sangoon at 6 a.m.

Sit on him.

If he starts making waves...

...pick him up, send him home.

- Yes, sir.

That's all.

Thank you.

I got a plane to catch.

Taxi service this way, sir.

Come on. Right here.

Excuse me, excuse me.

This way, please.

- Is this your first time in this town?

- No.

Hey, where you come from?

- Far away.

- Far away will be England, right?

Close enough.

All right. If you need something,

just tell me.

- I'll get it for you, you know.

- Okay.

You know, this town,

I'm telling you.

There is the beautiful girls,

like angels.

We have those younger, sexy girls.

We have a lot of bars here.

Not only, we have a specialty

massage here in this town.

It's very nice here.

I just need you to get me

where I asked you, okay?

Yeah, I'm going this place

that you want to go...

...but I want to give you

information about the town.

If you like to drink some beers...
