Extremely Dangerous ★★½ 1999

Convoluted thriller that originated as a four-part British miniseries. Neil Byrne (Bean) was a British intelligence agent working deep undercover after infilitrating a group of gangsters. But his life is blown apart when Neil is convicted of the brutal murders of his wife and daughter. Naturally, he's innocent and when he makes his escape from prison transport, he heads back to find the true killers and get his revenge while being pursued by mobsters, police, and the agency he worked for. Some of the violence is very nasty. 200m/C VHS, DVD .
