Better than I thought it would be
30 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was surprised by this film. It was well acted and well directed. They only had one problem and it was the sound. That might have been a budget thing. It was originally a Roger Corman film. Other then that it played well. Lots of action with a solid plot. If I were them I'd do a part 2 with the same actors but with a little better quality sound.
