Welcome to Poipet.

You are so beautiful.

Come on.



Hey. You can't sell damaged


Put her in the shipment.


Hey, Dex.

Bring out the merchandise.

Don't be offended.

We have a way of making sure

our client are

who they said they are.

F*** her.


And we watch.

You are negotiating huh?


Victor Dragovic is in Jersey.



I don't know, that's

all that I know okay?

Look, Nick, you don't know

who you're f***ing with okay?

These Serbs, they're not

like the Italians.

F***, they're not even like

the Russians, alright?

They have no code.



No, no! Wait! Wait!


Where is the delivery?

Pull me up and I'll talk.

- Ah! No!

- Where?


New Jersey docks.

The ship is called

The Cambodian Star.

Now pull me up!

- Will Dragovic be there?

- Hmm?

Yes, yes.

Victor Dragovic will be there.

Now pull me up.

Pull me up.

Please. Please.

You can have her.

No charge, I promise.

I'll throw her sister in too,

okay? Huh?

Oh, please.

I told you everything I know.

Come on. Just pull me up.


Negotiation is over.

They say our genes are

what make us immortal,

that our children will carry

on our names, our legacy.

That it is family that gives

us hope.

I am proud of you Andre.

As I am of your brothers,

Ivan and Goran.

Means Happy Birthday

kid brother.

My fourth son Janko

could not be here

but he sends best wishes

from Poipet.

My son, Andre,

you and I have the same blood

in our veins.

Here is to many good adventures.

May we all live long.

Detective Cassidy.

Special Agent Reed,

Human Trafficking Task Force.

What can I do for the FBI?

Well, you know I'd hoped for

a little more inter-agency


You're trying to keep

the operation contained.

- Stop so...

- Leaks, yeah I understand.

Look, you know,

it's not too late

to hand the op over

to us, you know.

Viktor Dragovic.

Ex-Serbian national,

now working in Russia.

Thank you for coming in late.

Dragovic made a fortune

in hotels and gambling

in Eastern Europe and Asia.

But he's also a major player

in what I consider

the most despicable endeavor

on Planet E, human trafficking.

Dragovic kidnaps young girls

in South East Asia,

runs them through Europe then

sells them all over the globe.

The skin trade's

worth billions of dollars.

Last year alone this country

saw over 2000 cases

and I consider every single one

of those a goddamned tragedy.

This is Dragovic's oldest

son, Goran.

Educated in England.

Son number two, Ivan.

Runs the Middle East operation.

This is son number three, Andre.

Isn't he cute?

He's a student at NYU.

And there's a fourth son Janko

who runs the trafficking

operations in South East Asia.

Okay you all know Nick Cassidy.

He's the case officer in

this particular opus.

Take it away Nick.

This morning we fished

Dex Guroff,

an informant, out of the Hudson.

Two gunshot wounds to the head.

Before he was killed Dex

confirmed to me

that Viktor Dragovic is here

in Jersey.

Now thanks to shared

bi-lateral intelligence

by the Royal Thai Police,

we know why.

Better. We know where.

Our target is the ship

The Cambodian Star.

The coast guard confirms

it arrives at Pier 21

at the Jersey Docks in

less than three hours.

Ladies and gentlemen,

we're going to make sure

that coming to America was

the worst decision

Viktor Dragovic ever made.

Andre, relax.

This time, your first time,

I will be with you.

Open door.

Go; Q9, go! go'


It's not my fault.

Janko, your son.

But you?

You are the boat skipper.

Where I come from,

Dolph Lundgren

Hans "Dolph" Lundgren (Swedish: [ˈdɔlf ˈlɵndgreːn] ( listen); born 3 November 1957) is a Swedish actor, director, screenwriter, producer, and martial artist. Lundgren received a degree in chemical engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology in the early 1980s and a master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Sydney in 1982. He holds the rank of 3rd dan black belt in Kyokushin karate and was European champion in 1980-81. While in Sydney, he became a bodyguard for Jamaican singer Grace Jones and began a relationship with her. He received a Fulbright scholarship to MIT and moved to Boston. Jones convinced him to leave the university and move to New York City to be with her and begin acting, where, after a short stint as a model and bouncer at the Manhattan nightclub The Limelight, Lundgren got a small debut role as a KGB henchman in the James Bond film A View to a Kill, in which Jones starred. Lundgren's breakthrough came in 1985, when he starred in Rocky IV as the imposing Soviet boxer Ivan Drago. Since then, he has starred in more than 40 films, almost all of them in the action genre. He portrayed He-Man in the 1987 science fantasy film Masters of the Universe , Red Scorpion (1988) and Frank Castle in the 1989 film The Punisher. Throughout the 1990s he appeared in films such as Dark Angel (1990), Cover-Up (1991), Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991), Universal Soldier (1992), Joshua Tree (1993), Pentathlon (1994), Men of War (1994), Johnny Mnemonic (1995), The Shooter (1995), Silent Trigger (1996) and Blackjack (1998). In 2004 he directed his first film, The Defender, and subsequently directed The Mechanik (2005), Missionary Man (2007), Command Performance (2009), and Icarus (2010), also starring in all of them. After a long spell performing in direct-to-video films since 1995, Lundgren returned to Hollywood in 2010 with the role of Gunner Jensen in The Expendables, alongside Sylvester Stallone and an all-action star cast. He reprised his role in The Expendables 2 (2012) and The Expendables 3 (2014). Also in 2014, he co-starred in Skin Trade, an action thriller about human trafficking he co-wrote and produced. The film marks his third collaboration with Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, the previous two being Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991) and Bridge of Dragons (1999). He is due to reprise his role as Gunner Jensen in The Expendables 4 (2020), and his Rocky IV role of Ivan Drago in the upcoming sequel to Creed. He appears in Sharknado 5, Global Swarming (2017), playing the protagonist's son Gil as an adult. more…
