Flash Gordon vs ninja?!
1 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sam J Jones stars in this fairly enjoyable action affair as a cop on the trail of some ruthless killers, including a demented ex CIA operative, who are attempting to procure the top secret formula to a potentially devastating biological weapon. Also drawn along for the ride are the excellent pairing of Jun Chong and Phillip Rhee (who gets to display some more of his awesome kicking skills!) who also appeared together in the similarly entertaining Los Angeles Street Fighter aka Ninja Turf (and in fact produced the film being reviewed here to).

Moving along at a cracking pace with some rather well handled action set pieces throughout and a pleasant splattering of gore (including a particularly nasty torture scene!) this is a reasonably satisfying flick and should certainly provide less discriminating action fans with a fairly solid ninety or so minutes of entertainment.

Look out to for the lovely Linda Blair in this as Jones' long suffering wife.

Overall, well worth a watch!
