A very dull film from start to finish.
27 June 1999 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

24 HRS TO MIDNIGHT is a good title for an action film, but not this one.

I saw this film last year and I was very disappointed that I spent money renting this..

The movie was badly made as well as the script which I beleive is written by a four year old.

We didn't see much of Cynthia is this one except I'm asking "is she the female ninja that keeps bumping off White Powder Chan's men throughout the whole film"? I guess not.

And "White Powder Chan"! I can't believe a black guy is portraying a chinese character.. This is totally unbelievable.

Well, if anyone is reading this, avoid this one at all costs..! I got my refund from this.. I didn't like it at all!

What a load of crap!
