John Trent last work seems to be incomplete.
12 October 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Director John Trent film seems to be a muddled film for it never really has any action scene or any serious shootout as the video box made it look like. Keith Emmerson's original score is not all there, as the new theme song "Best revenge" music is heard throught the film. Familar cast (Heard, McHattie, Watson,Davies and Helm) seems to give the worst performance, and Mike Ironside has a nothing role. Drug smuggling could be a exciting movie, but Trent made this one a talk-a-thon. See it if you are curious about it the film.
