Movie Reviews

Good action movie
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dolph Lundgren is now the king of testosterone-charged action genre, and his acting ability truly shines out as Christian Eriksson in this fast-paced, dramatic thriller. this movie has a lot going for it--impressive african sets, good acting and great special-effects, but also has a surprisingly intelligent script. All-in-all, I recommend this film for some intense viewing and entertainment(watch out for S.A's boy Ian Roberts as a baddie!). A good action movie."
So bad I cannot summerize
Inspector Gadget | On the trail of Doctor Claw | 11/27/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is not a typical Dolph movie nor is it a typical obscure film. I mean it's obscure, but not in a cool new find way. Perhaps it's due to bad writing and directing but it just seems so different in terms of dialogue and plot development. For most of the movie Dolph sits around and drinks but after about an hour he finally gets down to some action.He also sounds different. His voice is gravelly. Like he's smoked 100 cigars a day for a decade. But I guess this is him just getting into character, too bad it's not interesting but it's nice to see the effort. There should plenty for Dolph to get his teeth into here and lots of opportunity for a hot-potato of a movie. Land mines are a delicate issue but at some point in the movie it all collapses into standard action-man territory.The beginning is badly directed, some shootouts seems really false and the trailer is, by far, the WORST I have ever seen. The DVD has plain old stereo sound with a pan and scanned fullscreen picture. Avoid it."
Nothing special.

"Dolph Lundgren tackles the problem of land mines in this fairly amatuerish,predictable effort.Passenger 57 baddie Bruce Payne pops up,the baddie."
B-Class Movie

"The low budget film fails on all angles to impress or entice the viewer. Everything is just so amateur. Feel free to hit the back button."
