Storyline

After a man's sister is killed by two gunmen who seemingly come out of nowhere, he manages to find and kill them. He then discovers that the men he killed were part of a multi-millionaire's bizarre "death game", where someone is hunted through the streets of Los Angeles by teams of killers who get a big-money prize for killing their quarry--and he realizes that now he is "it".

AIP movie
29 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i bought this movie off of amazon.com and i have a knack for AIP movies. ever since i saw William Zipp in operation war zone i wanted to see more of his work so this title came in mind. its cheesy stupid funny and dopey and i loved it heres the story: William Zipp somehow gets tagged into a game where random bad guys go after him for a gun and money. the only way to stay alive is to kill bad guys for money. there's plenty of action, fight scenes are good the ending could of been a little better but still rather enjoyable therefore thats why I'm giving this a thumbs up.

director David A Prior knows how to direct a movie with plenty of action in it however there's not a single standout performance in the entire movie the acting from the vast majority of the cast is terrible Bill Zipp is the only exception.
