A movie for Gary Daniels`s fans!
(2 out of 5 stars)
"This is a action thriller about a man`s family that is held hostage by masked terrorists and plans to get revenge! This is a low budget movie that has it`s ups and downs but it is entertaining if you can get by the bad music that is stuck on one beat,horrible dialogue,bad effects,bad color,way off camra work,and a conversation that goes nowhere for about fifteen minutes. We looked at the box and saw Gary Daniels was holding a katana sword and We found out that he didn`t even have a sword at all in the movie so don`t plan on seeing Gary use a sword on anybody. Now for the good stuff about Black Friday. It has a few fight scenes that last a long time and there is
some good shooting scenes aswell. These scenes however are tilted and discolored by the camra so it`ll seem different. Black Friday is a movie that doesn`t have the greatest production and fight/shooting sequences so its not no Steven Seagal movie but if you are a fan of Gary Daniels this is a must see and a must buy or even if you are a movie lover that loves martial arts and shooting this is something to check out!"
Not bad for low budget

"this movie was quite good. yo can really tell that the cast and crew did their best to make sure that it is a good movie, but i think that what stopped them was the money. they didn have the budget to make it as interessting as it could be. but the fight scenes are great, the way the camera move during the fight scene is well done, the soundtrack was awesome, but still, i feel that there were something missing... but at the same time i love this movie."
WHERE'S THE SWORD?

"Shame on movie distributors that put your action hero on the front and misrepresent the movie! Gary Daniels never even touches a sword in this one! Shame, shame!
Aside from that, here's some thoughts about BLACK FRIDAY:
*Director Darren Doane has a nifty camera eye, with his use of pastel abstract colors and some unusual filming of the film's two long fight scenes.
*Why does Dean Campbell give up his family to help out in this caper?
*Gary Daniels has a commanding stage presence, able to blend his fierce martial arts persona and that of your average Joe. He is to be commended for trying to be an "actor" instead of a "martial arts" star, but he should remember---he is still a martial arts star and he should put a little more action in his movies. The long fifteen minute sequence between him and his friend, Matt, is filmed at such a strange angle it diminishes the performances.
*This is not a great movie, but enjoyable in a cinematic way."
This is a great movie!

"First off, this movie is awesome! The description on the package is pretty straight forward, but the movie isn't. Plenty of plot twists to keep you off balance. Awesome music, I wish the soundtrack was available! The fights were great, one of the fights looked like something out of a Tekken or a Dead or Alive video game. The camera work wasn't the best, the CGI wasn't great, and some of the dialogue was just bad, but all in all, this movie suprised me, and I'm so glad I got it. One major disappointment, Gary Daniels is holding a katana on the package, but unfortunately, there's no swords in the movie so you don't get to see Daniels take someone out with a sword. Also the ending was slow, and you're not quite sure what happens to his family. Buy this movie if you're an action/martial arts fan, you won't be disappointed!"
