Did You Know?

Trivia

Filmed as a "backdoor pilot" for a potential television series that was never produced. Cynthia Rothrock claimed this was because the movie was made at a time when American television networks were very sensitive about the amount of violence they would broadcast. Reportedly, director Kevin Hooks would receive frequent memos from the studio advising him not to film specific acts of violence, like kicks to the head. See more »

The Force Of One....
25 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's face it, without Rothrock this film would have been as flat as 6 month old soda pop. Rothrock added so much to this film with her lightning fast moves, great charm, and excellent scene by scene presence. No disrespect to Keach but Rothrock could have pulled this one off alone in Die Hard (ala Bruce Willis) fashion. Christopher Neame was not very engaging as the bad guy either.

It was these flaws that cost this action drama a shot at at being full blown TV series. Nonetheless, Rothrock displayed some of her finest moves. Her close-ups were very nicely done as well. Rothrock does not get the credit she deserves as an accomplished action film star. She is HUGE overseas especially in the far east. It's a darn shame that the one chance she had to do a network TV series was ruined by the film makers inability to compliment her with a good ensemble cast.
