Gary Daniels stars as a kickboxer who is framed by mobsters and his former teacher who tested the drug on him, see this drug does something magnificent and I had to take their word for it, since it's never explained. Still lots of (badly staged) action takes place making this accessible only for Daniels' legion of fans. Capital Punishment, I found sitting in the bargain bin at my local K-Mart, and it was 3.99, of course for such a cheap DVD and cast that offered David Carradine and Gary Daniels together, it looked to be at least cheesy fun. I also expected a prison movie, since it was called, you know "Capital Punishment" unfortunately it was a badly made "martial artist kickboxes the hell out of everyone movie". The problem is we don't know who is who and therefore it becomes a challenge to even make it through the running time. Carradine by the way has maybe 5 minutes of screen time, while the fight sequences are filmed with such disinterest and lack of intensity that this adds up for nothing but the most forgiving fans of Gary Daniels. Although this terrible movie will most likely try their patience.
