Three months later, an elderly couple discover the body of a wounded man in a tree, wearing a parachute. The young man (Dorff) cannot remember the slightest thing about his own identity. The only clue is a tattoo on his neck, "XIII". Meanwhile, in the Whitehouse, government intelligence is still conducting the search for the President's killer. With the elections just weeks away, a confirmed suspect could swing the vote for the administration. Hours after XIII's location is picked up by covert intelligence, elite special ops forces are swarming the couple's house in Cape Fear.

The name Deacon appears once in each episode, first in the name Roger Deacon, a witness in a police report in episode 1, and then in episode 2 as "Deacon Chemical", one of co-conspirator Jasper Winthrow's companies. Deacon Frost was the name of Stephen Dorff's character from the movie Blade (1998), which is arguably his most well-known role. See more »

This movie is from a Belgium comics book that was print in 1984, so if there is any cloning it can't be from 24 hours that came out years later! since 1984 a series of book with this character is on the market each year! there is more than 24 comics book actually on book selves in any french speaking country! when you follow the movies you can see the outline of 9 11 conspiracy type followed per the patriot act, ideas that came up in a 1984 comics book. Those two movies follow the original idea but as in any movies script, the movies is a bit different than the comics book, the general idea still in place. The movies have nothing to do with 24 hours, they are not even close! In case you didn't notice 24 hours action is 99% based in LA, seriously how much time a US president spend in LA during a 8 years term?
