"Don't worry, I learned long ago to stop asking questions," explains Gary Cope (Affleck) to CIA-Director Patricia Jones (Davis) at the end of their latest briefing. The mission, as outlined by Davis, calls for Cope and the rest of his CIA-backed anti-terrorist team (code-named Elude) to find and neutralize a former Russian Colonel, now terrorist, known as "Shadow" (Carlyle).  However, the Elude team quickly learns that while Shadow is more powerful than ever before, there are more dangerous enemies lurking just beyond their periphery.
