Soul Assassin (Crime/Thriller/Action, 96 minutes). Starring Skeet Ulrich, Kristy Swanson, Rena Owen, Derek De Lint. Directed by Laurence Malkin.

Powerful businessman Karl Jorgensen takes custody of a young boy named Kevin, whose father was mysteriously died.

Karl raises the boy to be an ambitious and successful businessman, all of which makes his biological son, Karl Jr., jealous.

After his girlfriend is killed, Kevin swears to track down the person responsible and soon discovers more than he expected, including answers to some of the questions surrounding his father's death.

This Dutch-made film uses American actors in the leads, probably to draw more of an audience. However, it should have offered more substance than style.**
