"B-Action martial arts actor Gary Daniels (City Hunter, Bloodmoon, White Tiger) stars in Full Impact, and is honestly my only reason for checking out this film. If this were the first film of his I had seen I would not be all that impressed. While Daniels supplies the movie with plenty of fight action, the fights never awed me one bit - even for a B movie. As for the movie itself, ugh, I don't think it could have ended fast enough, however, I am pleased to say it actually got better as the film progrssed, for whatever that's worth.
Daniels stars as Jared - a former cop now bounty hunter. Already on everyone's bad side at the station, it only escalates when Daniels gets involved in solving the mystery behind a new killer on the loose. I actually was determined to finish the movie to discover who the killer was, though it wasn't too difficult of a guess however it made for an interesting final showdown between he and Jared.
When the movie began I already knew I was in for a long and boring ride once the cheesy credits began to roll as Gary Daniels posed with a gun and practiced some katas in the street. The dialouge, acting, and characters were about as bad as a B movie could get, and the fights weren't that much better, even though there was quite a variety from ally fights, street fights, club fights, ring fights and warehouse fights. The choreography stunk and half the time sound effects were way off. Gary Daniels displayed a few nice kicks that he is capable of, but still limted to what I've seen in his other films. Fortunately the final fight was good, well, at least compared to what most of the movie had to offer. It lasts a surprising 9 minutes, though half of it was composed of running and chasing around town.
It took everything I had to sit through this movie straight through, but things got a bit better as time went along. The fights improved as did the story, but in the end I can't say I have any desire to watch this again. Check out some of Daniel's much better B movies such as Bloodmooon, Rage, White Tiger or Deadly Target.
