“Cartels” is such a bizarre movie. It was shot two years ago under another title, but now it’s getting a quick release via Lionsgate/Grindstone/Scheinhardt Wig Company. The film’s framing device features a rather aging Steven Seagal working as a Black Ops guy trying to get answers for a raid gone bad. Make no mistake, as the film belongs to Georges St-Pierre and Luke Goss. The film plays about 20 minutes too long, but it will hit all of those B-movie action key notes that everyone wants to experience. It’s pretty forgettable, but we can all think of at least one person that will want to check it out.

The Plot Thus Far
Action legend Steven Seagal headlines this explosive thriller that pits U.S. forces against an Eastern European drug cartel. When crime boss Salazar turns informant, U.S. Marshal Jensen (Luke Goss, Blade II) and his team must guard their luxury-hotel safe house. But as cartel underboss Sinclaire (UFC fighter Georges St. Pierre) and his hit squads descend to murder Salazar, the situation explodes, enraging Agent Harrison (Seagal), who will stop at nothing to root out the mole that compromised the operation.
