Not the best script or acting, but Terry did the best she could with what she was given
23 February 1999 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

There is no doubt that Don Wilson is a phenomenal marital artist. But he really didn't get to show it off in this film. If fact, most of the story was so lame that the films only saving grace was Terry Farrell. Not a great part for her, but she did the best she could with what she was given and her performance was, well...fun. But even she couldn't save this film from becoming a B movie compared to other, better action/martial arts movies.
