Movie Reviews

First time directing?
Matthew P. Harjo | Seattle, WA | 02/21/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The first (and only) time I watched this movie left me in shock. Primarily because I couldn't believe someone would pay money to get this movie made. The producers are probably still banging their heads against the wall for this one.The script sounds like a sixth grader with a foul mouth wrote it. Andrew Clay displays his lack of acting and humor over and over. There are so many useless pieces of information and dialogue it's almost if this were to be taken as a joke. The direction was probably non-existant as was any type of cinematography. I could have choreographed the action sequences better, as they were painfully slow and contrived.I'll admit that only the best of the action genre movies appeal to me. If the fist fights and bad one-liners were to be the main focus of the movie and not the plot, I was doomed from the beginning."
Good Victoria Pratt effort

"The movie is not horrible, but you should choose almost ANYTHING else to watch if you have 2 hours to kill. Having said that, if you like Victoria Pratt as much as I do, it's worth buying for your Vicky collection. She's in about 7 scenes, always wearing skin-tight, hot outfits, especially the gym scenes. Get the DVD for easier access to her scenes and so that you won't have to watch the movie itself more than once. Her physique is buff, like it was in "John Woo's Once a Thief." A little fuller than her lean and cut Sarge character in "Cleopatra 2525." Victoria is a very big reason, other than Pam, to say "thank you, Canada!""
Only thing that keeps it from a one star is DICE!
sinisterfiend666 | the master of Horror | 05/30/2003

"As mentioned by others, this is pretty bad. I think B action movies are worse that B-horror movies. It is also boring at time, no classic DICE lines in this either. The one African American head cop (or what ever he was) was one of the worse actors I ever seen: as soon as he said his lines he was so over acting i laughed my but off (only funny thing in the movie) Anyway, glad I did not rent this, or own it, i caught it on cable TV, i would never buy it. BTW - Dice needs to add hair color to his side burns, they look stupid!"
