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>

Aka "Death Ring"
6 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Man is Gary Daniels' acting bad! But man is he a great athlete! They should have given him less dialogue and let him speak more with his body. They did that with Jim "The Warrior" Hellwig, and that guy comes across with a frightening physical presence; however, his long-awaited fight scene with Daniels is short and disappointing. Apart from that, the fight scenes are where this movie shines: the choreography is fast, brutal and well-executed by guys who know what they are doing. It's when the action steps out of the ring that it becomes generic and uninteresting (there IS one plot twist that you won't see coming, but it doesn't really help the film in any way). In my opinion, "Firepower" should have been titled "Death Ring", and should have spent more time in it. (**)
