Lame actioner
31 July 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

One unusual moment in the history of movie company PM Entertainment was during the 1989-1991 period when they hired Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs to star in six movies. Did PM really think that LHJ was a marketable star? Or was he the biggest star they could afford at the time. I suspect the latter. Anyway, one interesting thing about this particular PM/LHJ movie is that LHJ not only starred in the movie, he also directed and is credited with additional dialogue. It's pretty easy to see why he didn't have much of a directing career apart from this movie. In fairness, he was working with a real low budget, which explains things like a general cheap look to the movie. There isn't that much action in the movie, and what there is is constructed in a way to be lame and unexciting. But the worst thing about the movie is the script. The plot and its various twists will seem very familiar to most viewers. About the only original element in the movie is the portrayal of the two assassins who come near the end of the movie. While the movie is occasionally lame enough to generate unintentional chuckles (such as with LHJ's lame martial arts skills), for the most part the movie is a tired bore.
