Storyline

In the year 2007, crime has risen at an exponential rate. Once highly populated metropolises such as Los Angeles are no longer inhabitable. These cities have transformed into "Hell Zones," ruled by violent street gangs. The Hell Zone, formerly called the "Zone of Personal Freedom," is a safe-haven for criminal warpaths everywhere. This Hell Zone in LA is controlled by a criminal mastermind named Drexal (Joseph Ruskin). For the sake of entertaining his crowds of decadent losers and underlings, Drexal has staged a series of lethal, no-holds-barred matches in the "Death Ring," where the winner takes all of the glory...while the defeated one shall lose his self-respect (or maybe just his head). Meanwhile, two brave cops, Braniff (Chad McQueen), and Sledge (Gary Daniels) must risk their badges...and their lives when they enter Los Angeles's "Hell Zone." They must fight for their lives in order to expose an alleged "black market" involving the sale of counterfeit AIDS vaccines. Will these ... Written by David Choi <KDaDDyChOi@aol.com>

Top Movie....The Swordsmen steals the show
19 June 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What can a say. Firepower is the personification of B grade action that is very entertaining. For lovers of the action genre this movie is a must have for your collection, especially if you are a wrestling fan also.

I stumbled across the movie whilst researching Gary Daniels filmograghy on this site. After reading on fans review of the movie and its villain I knew I had to buy it.

Chad McQueen is OK in the leading role and while he comes across as a poor mans version of Tom Sizemore, he does a solid job which his father would be proud of.

Gary Daniels as always come to the table with a great physique and good fighting sequences. HOWEVER, the show is stolen by one man...The Swordsmen. Without doubt The Sworsdmen (Ultimate Warrior) is the greatest villain to ever grace an action movie. While his only words throughout the film are 'Arggghhhh' he delivers them better than anyone and his on screen presence in undeniable and rivalled by none.

The only bad thing about this movie as that the The Swordsmen wasn't in more scenes. When the Swordsmen is not fighting in the 'deathring' and decapitating others with his fists and blade, he is walking around the 'Hellzone' shirtless, only wearing an apocalypitic leather trench coat. Sooo intimidating and cool it has you screaming for more.

Go see this movie now...Arggghhh
