"Io non so chi siete, non so che cosa volete.. se cercate un riscatto sappiate che non possiedo denaro. Però io possiedo delle capacità molto particolari che ho acquisito durante la mia lunga carriera che fanno di me un incubo per gente come voi. Se lasciate andare mia figlia la storia finisce qui, non verrò a cercarvi, non vi darò la caccia. Ma se non lo farete, io vi cercherò, io vi troverò e vi ucciderò."

Not a bad but neither a great movie. I cannot shake the feeling that it was (heavily) influenced by Eli Roth's "Hostel": while there is a lot less horror and more action, the gist is quiet similar. A brutal gang of eastern-Europeans kidnap young girls and offer them as sex / torture slaves to whoever is wealthy enough to buy them. Entertaining but for sure not a "must-see".
