Maximum Impact is a 2017 action-comedy movie directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak. The movie stars Alexander Nevsky as a Russian federal agent, Kelly Hu as the leader of the US Secret Service, and Evgeniy Stychkin as a Russian gangster. The story begins when a meeting is arranged between the US and Russian presidents in Moscow. However, things take a turn for the worse when a group of terrorists attempt to kidnap the Russian president's granddaughter during the visit. Nevsky's character, agent Maxim Kadurin, is tasked with rescuing the young girl and apprehending the terrorists.

Meanwhile, the US Secret Service sends its best agent, played by Hu, to provide security for the president on the trip. As the two agents investigate the kidnapping, they discover a larger conspiracy involving a powerful international criminal organization. Together, they must navigate the dangerous world of Russian politics and law enforcement to foil the organization's plans.

The movie features a mixture of action, comedy, and political intrigue. The action scenes are well choreographed and exciting, with Nevsky displaying impressive martial arts skills. The comedy element comes from the interactions between the two agents, as they struggle to communicate due to the language barrier and cultural differences.

Despite the serious subject matter, the movie doesn't take itself too seriously, and there are several humorous moments that lighten the mood. The chemistry between Nevsky and Hu is also a highlight of the movie, as their characters develop a begrudging respect for each other as the story progresses.

In addition to the main plot, there are several subplots involving the Russian gangster played by Stychkin. He is a rival of the terrorists who kidnapped the president's granddaughter and becomes involved in the larger conspiracy. Stychkin's character adds a bit of complexity to the story, as he is not simply a one-dimensional villain but a more nuanced character with his own motivations.

Overall, Maximum Impact is an entertaining action-comedy movie that delivers on its promises of martial arts fights, political intrigue, and humorous interactions between the two leads. The movie is not without its flaws, but the enjoyable performances of Nevsky, Hu, and Stychkin make it a fun ride from start to finish.

Maximum Impact is a 2018 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 50 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 2.3 and a MetaScore of 16.
