Surprisingly good..........., 9 September 2003
Author: rmadesp (rmadesp@yahoo.com) from LA, USA

I catched this movie on cable a few years ago and upon viewing that there were so few reviews on imdb, I figured I might offer my 2 cents or whatever, afterall, I am an action-film buff.

Despite pre-judgements and immediate write-offs by most "shallow" people, Cage actually manages to bring a captivating presence to your screen. Lou Ferrigno & Reb Brown got the right characters here to make a winning combination, while the remaining crew work out well, from Michael Dante to James Shigeta......after you see the film, you'll understand, do remember though that this is a late 80's early 90's piece....dont unfairly criticize.

To sum it up, Cage may not be beautifully filmed nor have the best action scenes, but it doesnt have to as it proves to be entertaining enough to be worthwhile for fans of the kind.
