Maximum Risk


1h 45m 1996

Brief Synopsis

Alain Moreau, a French soldier, never knew he had a brother, much less a twin, until he found him lying dead on the streets of his European home town. To find out who his brother was, Alain must step into his shoes. he must become Mikhail, and follow his footsteps back to New York's tough Little Odessa and into the same shadowy underworld that swallowed his brother. There's only one problem: all traces of Mikhail's life are rapidly disappearing, and the one person who knew Mikhail best may not be telling all she knows...
