Another stalwart effort from the director of Commando
Surely the rating should be higher? This is one of the better Dolph Lundgren-takes-on-all-comers movies, and its got Brandon Lee godamnit!
Ok, so it gets predictable, but isnt that why action movies are so well loved? Its got enough of a storyline not to resemble Red Scorpion in any way, but only just little enough to make it a totally enjoyable flick. I mean, for 1991, what were you expecting? Considering that this was the director who brought us Commando, this is the ultimate in bloke films. If you want to clear the women away, put either one of these films on and enjoy a mens night in!
So its not Minority Report, its not The Shawshank Redemption but its redemption at its best, feet first!
Oh, and Tia Carrare in a hot tub. Gets it at least one point. ;)
