Mandrake is a thrilling action movie that was released in 2010. The movie centers around the character of Darren McBride, played by Max Martini, who is an undercover detective working for the police department. To bust a drug cartel, he has successfully infiltrated the gang and is now in a position of trust with the cartel's leader.

The leader of the drug cartel is Joan Castillo, played by Betsy Russell. She is a ruthless leader who is known to be unforgiving and cold-hearted. She is aware of Darren's true identity, and uses this knowledge to manipulate him into carrying out her evil plans.

One night, Joan reveals a new plan to Darren. She wants him to steal a rare root called Mandrake from a wealthy businessman named Carlos Hernandez, played by Benito Martinez. Joan believes that this root has magical powers that can cure all sorts of diseases and bring about immortality. She plans to use the root to become invincible, and rule over the underworld without any obstacles.

Darren is initially hesitant to carry out this dangerous task, but Joan gives him an ultimatum - either he gets the Mandrake or his cover will be blown, putting his life and that of his family in grave danger. He reluctantly agrees to carry out the mission, and sets out to infiltrate Carlos Hernandez's home.

The mission, however, turns out to be much more difficult than anticipated. Not only does Carlos have a state-of-the-art security system, but he also has a personal guard of trained fighters who will stop at nothing to protect him and his property. Over the course of the movie, Darren finds himself in a series of dangerous and life-threatening situations, including a heart-stopping car chase through the mountains.

As Darren works towards his goal, he discovers that the Mandrake has a much darker history than he ever imagined. The root is said to have been used in an ancient ritual that, when performed, turned those participating into invincible warriors with superhuman strength, abilities, and longevity. However, the ritual also resulted in individuals with a profound thirst for power and domination over others, which grossly affected the families and communities residing near the ritual site, eventually leading to the loss of their heritage and land.

At this point, Darren begins to rethink his mission and wonders if he is doing the right thing. When he finally comes face to face with Carlos, he discovers that he has a bigger problem on his hands than simply stealing the Mandrake. Carlos is not the man he appeared to be, and his motives go far beyond his wealth and influence.

Mandrake is a gripping movie that will keep its audience on the edge of their seats. The action never stops, and there are plenty of twists and turns that will keep viewers guessing until the very end. With an all-star cast and a well-written script, Mandrake is definitely worth watching.

Mandrake is a 2010 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.6.
