Only worth watching for Lance Henriksen
21 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I bought this movie knowing it was a budget title simply for the reason that Lance Henriksen (Terminator) (Aliens) (Millennium) is in it - one of my favourite actors. He is really the only thing that kept this movie going and kept me watching as it is a rather poor movie. he accepts roles in some very low budget movies when really he deserves much much better as his performances in the three movies above i have quoted could not be matched but this one was really poor... The only other good actor in it is the sexy Arabella Holzbog, it was also her first movie. since this she has always been stuck in the b-movie sector and deserves better also and has recently stared in some "alias" episodes. This is not a good movie and there is not a lot to it story wise or anything it is quite pointless but worth one watch if you are a lance or Arabella fan.
