Movie Reviews

No frills at THE BASE
Mary S. | Grand Rapids, MI United States | 06/23/2001
(2 out of 5 stars)

"THE BASE is an overall average film. Clearly the actors' talents are not put to full use. Mark Dacascos' excellent martial arts skills are supressed to appear like a good street fighter, not the impressive military weapon he is suppose to portray. The story line is interesting, but is weakened by the poor ending of this action film. The good guy wins, but it is a dismal victory. The nudity added to The Base does not really flow with the story line. The director clearly failed in this film. The acting in this film is very good, but the camera angles were not. I'm sure the actors were disappointed with the final product. THE BASE is worth seeing once. I suggest renting versus buying."
Very well done

"Very good action movie, with excellent acting by Mark Dacascos. He brings depth and intensity to the role, and with a look can you can tell his thoughts and emotional state. I am also very impressed with his ability to play different characters in his movies, instead of playing the same character over and over like some of the more famous actors."
Mark Dacascos goes to the army...
Francis | germany | 01/08/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"An army major working undercover in a gang of army rebillions who deal with drugs. It was quite a good movie with an acceptable plot. . But still, regarding the fights, that was not quite the Mark Dacascos that I once knew from Drive. Mark's style in this movie was rather rough and rude instead of fancy and fun. And I think it's not Mark's fault that his fights weren't lookink this good. I think that the choreographer of the film didn't know how to use Mark's Martial Arts-ability. Maybe Mark's next movie will be a better one..."
Mark truly know's how to act, and look's good doing it | united states | 11/28/1999

"It's gotta be the army clothes, that makes it more appealing to anybody who hasn'y watched this video yet, mark is an undercover army agent who has to get alot of evidence of crooked united states army men, and bring them to justice."
