If surfing for good action fare, rent, if for story, don't
10 November 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

This action driven movie could of been better, but is letdown by it's weak story, a very much clichéd plot, involving videotapes, and bad guys in suits. I like Gary Day, so in that aspect, the film has an advantage, but that's not how I rate stuff. I did like the movie, on the account that I really like action adventures, plus there are some dangerous moments, but I don't think the story materialized full circle, as there could of been more meaty structure to it. Day's a PI, where his best friend (Gerard Maguire, an actor I like) is killed over these tapes. Love interest of the victim, Gosia Dobrolska, lands alongside Day, where the two are hunted by the baddies. One scene I loved involved bad guy Tony Barry making a call to a playboy, bad guy, Rod Mullinar, pushing his buttons, while devouring a pie. Check out another scene that has Day, pulling Dobrolska, towards him, kissing him, to avoid detection, as being chased. Dobrolska then slaps him, and they continue. The end was interesting, but the movie is just standard, straight to video fare.
