Jim Solomen is a hired assassin,
sent on a revenge mission. Bernard Abrams, a wealthy businessman,
has lost his daughter Allison, to a white slave trader. Bernard
wants all involved dead. The body count will determine Solomen's
pay. Ten grand a head.
Once Solomen reaches the Far East, he looks up and old friend
Jimmy Hickox, an American, thought to be a POW. Jimmy fills Solomen's
weapons order, which reads like a shopping list for a coup d'etat.
But he has little to offer in the way of information, except
a warning that his mission is suicide.
Solomen must infiltrate the country using his past government
connections to obtain an F14 fighter plane and a US Navy LA class
submarine. As he pursues Allison's kidnappers, he hears of their
systematic destruction. Each new clue leads to another notch
in the body count, and the leveling of another city block. Of
course, those attacked bite back. Initially, they are only local
groups, but it is soon revealed that the Triad Mafia is a big
part of the ugliness, and then it worsens, as the government
rears its ugly head.
But Solomen keeps killing, a mutilating machine. He is being
chased as hard as he chases. Now in the country, he must fight
his way out. Until a final surprising conflict, in which he rights
all wrongs, and puts an end to a big part of the slave trade.

Captured was originaly written by Kevin
Bernhardt (Sweepers, Jill Rips).
Captured was pre-sold under this title with this
pitch below but it was rewrote by director Damian
Lee and became the film now known as Agent
Red. Even if they originaly shot Agent Red
under the title Captured, I consider it as a never
seen project, as the story was significantly different from the
one told in Agent Red. It also seems Dolph Lundgren
signed on the picture for the original script and doesn't seem
overjoyed to play in Agent Red. In fact, the line
"it sounds like a bad action movie" is part of the
re-shoots and new scenes (Damian Lee
was actually replaced by another director for re-shoots, because
he had gone back to Canada for other projects).
Note: The credited
director, W.B. Hickox seems not to really exists!
