It *does* actually lead to the slaughterhouse, though that's by sheer coincidence
This is the fourth Paré flick I catch, the others being Bad Moon(a crossbreed of Lassie and your typical sub-par werewolf story), Deadly Heroes(that reuses part of a so-so car-chase in this, and is pure camp) and Village of the Damned(where I must have been basically fine with him, as I don't recall him standing out as poor). Here, he's playing two(I think; it is difficult to determine, as the only thing that sets them apart... *at all*... is that one has a patch of blood over his left eye, as evidence that he's been tortured) identical cousins(they walk and talk alike)... no, wait, twins. Yeah, they feel each other's pain(well, once, when it's required for this thing's excuse for a plot)... has that *ever* been a compelling idea? Whether or not such a thing is just a little bit realistic, it is corny as all hell. Anyway, where Double Impact had split-screen shots, we don't even get *that* here. Chris Brandt wakes up one morning, certain that his brother(in Lebanon, engaged in the conflict) is alive(he dreamt it, you see; at this point, the producers remind the writers that they are, in fact, not currently doing a script for My Little Pony). There is relatively little action, and only near the end does it get to be at least decent. This is one of the stupidest protagonists I've encountered. For some reason, he sure can fight, in spite of being a mere basketball coach. This is not that exciting or entertaining. There is hardly any tension. It is definitely a B-movie, with the acting "talent" to match. The score is fine, nothing special. Same goes for the dialog, with the occasional exception that is concentrated pain in audio form. As another person already put it, this is put together by Americans and Isralies, and offensive to everyone but those groups. There is a little sexuality/eye-candy and moderate, bloody violence in this. Flat, one-sided, and will probably give you constipation... similar, I suppose, to a pizza, albeit without the appeasing scent and taste. Yeah, watch the JCVD film instead. I recommend this solely to those looking for a fix in the genre. 4/10
