In one fleeting moment, L.A. firefighter Gordy Brewer (Schwarzenegger) loses everything that he had ever cared about.
Running late to meet his wife and young son at a downtown high-rise, he witnesses a catastrophic bomb blast kill his family before his eyes.
The explosion is credited to "The Wolf", an infamous rebel leader in Colombia’s decades-long civil war. The intended targets were members of the
Colombian consulate and American intelligence agents. Gordy's wife and child are considered "collateral damage," innocent people who lost their
lives for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Gordy's only consolation is the hope that justice will prevail for the loss of his family.
When the official U.S. investigation into the Wolf's whereabouts stalls, Gordy realizes that bringing the terrorist to justice is no longer a priority to anyone
but himself. Against the advice of friends and pointed warnings from the CIA and the FBI, Gordy heads to war-torn Colombia to track him down
alone. He puts his life on the line to bring The Wolf to justice but at this point he has nothing left to lose. Gordy's relentless pursuit leads him from
the jungles of Colombia back to the streets of Washington where the bomber is preparing to strike again. -- © 2001 Warner Bros. Pictures
