A ridiculous action movie wannabe, with one amusing scene.
8 August 1999 | by (Espoo, Finland) – See all my reviews

I hated this. Actors sucked, action sucked, directing sucked. The plot borrowed some elements from the movie Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins... (1985). That was the only good thing about the plot. Too much was left unexplained. I guess the plot gave actors nothing to act, so they had to create their own characters. The results were terrible, but what can you expect, if one is to be a bad guy, who is to become a literate good guy with killer's instincts, but not towards women?

As this is an action movie, action counts, not plot or acting. Unfortunately action was also bad. Fights were slow, awkward and they lacked fluidity as seen in Hong Kong action movies. Gun-fights were ruined because bullets weren't able to break anything.

Directing was non-existent and cameramen didn't know where the action was going. By the end of the movie, I was hoping that all the characters were killed, but no surprises there. If you want to see just one scene of this movie, then see How to become a Karate Master in one Lesson.
