Great B-movie
14 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

Fun action B-film in the Grand 1980's one man army tradition. It's great to see Marvin Hagler as an "actor". The story itself is pretty typical. A lone-warrior "Shane" type deal, but it's in a fun setting, and the action is hot. See this movie and reminisce about what B-action movies used to be like.
