Good average - if you like action
24 September 1999 | by (Aschaffenburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This film is a cheap and average movie. If you want good maintenance and action without much tension - so you will be right. Too much is foresees and unbelievable...you know what will happens from the beginning and that doesn't change... But you can look at this film...when you don't want to make any "brain-work" - or want to get off some stress ! It's good Popcorn-maintenance.

Nice to see Arnold Vosloo in one of his earlier role (18 min. from the whole film)...but always the bad guy ! Damn !
