Storyline

Cannel expert Ed is asked for advice by the local police in search for the murderer of two sewer-men. Soon Ed realizes that not he's seeking the murderer, but the other way around: it's his former friend Daggat, who's come for revenge for an incident in Vietnam, where Ed would have let him die. His half-Vietnamese teenage son Rick fears that Ed has no chance against Daggat and hurries after him to help or at least take counter-revenge.

Phew! What a stinker!
29 July 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, it would stink as all the main action is set in the sewer tunnels. Good job this film wasn't in 'smell-0-vision' or something similar.

The story itself is very pedestrian and the type of thing we have seen many times before and done better. An embittered man plots revenge on an ex-colleague. In this instance it's an ex-Viet Nam vet who kills sewer workers to bring in our hero who he blames for leaving him for dead in the jungle.

It sounds very familiar, doesn't it? And might have worked as an episode of some TV series like the 'A-Team' but not as a full length film. Even at a fairly short running time of 82 minutes, it still feels heavily padded out. It doesn't help that the director has no sense of pacing at all, far too many overlong lingering scene shots when the action should have moved on.

There's also the cringe-worthy soft rock, sub-Pat Benetar '80's music which acts as the soundtrack throughout the film. And also as the crux of the film when the hero's son uses ghetto-blasters playing the music in the sewers to distract the villain. When he shoots up the players, you can't help been on his side in that instance.

All in all, a pretty dull film which rumbles to it's predictable conclusion long after the viewer has lost any interest.
