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>

So good.
11 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a masterpiece. Truth be told the reason I latched onto it was because Gary Daniels was in it and I've been a rabid fan of his for a while. That coupled with a ravaged near future (borderline post apocalyptic) setting and the ULTIMATE WARRIOR as one of the greatest villains to ever grace an action film, makes this a movie to flock to.

The story has been summed up enough and basically rings true and delivers what it promises. The only problem I had with this movie was that Daniels wasn't' the lead actor and was overshadowed by Chad McQueen. McQueen gives a good performance, but watching Daniels in full on action hard-ass mode is one of the greatest cinematic guilty pleasures of all time ( check out Rage, Cold Harvest and Blood Moon for a sample of awesome Gary).

Regardless of my obviously biased review (I can't help it Daniels is an action Icon for me) this film contains enough standard action film fodder to please pretty much anyone. It has car crashes, laser gun fights, CAGE FIGHTING, future wastelands and pretty much anything else they hoped they could squeeze in there. If you're ever lucky enough to happen upon this do yourself a favor and pick it up, you won't be disappointed. MASTERPIECE.
