B-Movie Galore!
25 September 2002 | by (THE STATES) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie I was in heaven. This movie started out as a bombed out idea by a few cheapies, then was taken over by the best b-movie actors in Hollywood(i.e. Hoke Howell, Ross Hagen, P.J. Soles, Clint Howard, etc.) to form a film such as the title-which refers to "Body Organ Replacement Network. A cop loses his three adopted daughters to unseen night crawlers who work for the B.O.R.N. when he tries to get them back, he realizes that there is a whole world of the black market killing people just to sell their organs on the black market for the biggest dollar. The thirty minute shoot-out finale is especially a treat for those who like b-movie goods. The film benefits from great performances by its leads Hagen, Howell, and Soles. A b-movie made by b-movie actors has great dark night L.A. street photography to add to its prizes. A B-Movie Extravaganza!
