Slow Moving Action film.
11 May 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This boring action film directed by guy who made KILL THE GOLDEN GOOSE and the comedy THEY CALL ME BRUCE? stars Max Thayer (last seen in ILSA: HARLEM KEEPER) as a man who is recruited by a organization who does the dirty work for powerful people. When on a routine mission to stop an ex-merc from writing a book on something that happen in the past, Thayer realized what the organization doing is wrong and teams up with the ex-merc's sister to help her brother's return and print the book her wrote about the organization. The fight sequence looks badly staged (even though it was supervised by Master Bon Soon Han). Music is stock music used in many other films like Andy Sardris's SEVEN to DRAGON VS. NEEDLES OF DEATH ad music. The film even ends in a sloppy end credit song, which wasn't even credited. Not recommended, unless you just want to see an action film.
