Pretty forgettable for the most part
6 February 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

PM Entertainment was starting to get warmed up by the time this movie was made, and you can see in this movie some of the trademarks found in their later and better movies. The cinematography (by PM honcho Richard Pepin) is excellent, and there are some impressive locations the movie is shot on. The opening has a couple of impressive action sequences, and the later martial art sequences are made in a way that comes across as more realistic that usual.

But despite a few attributes like that, the movie ends up being pretty forgettable. Michael Worth is pretty bland, despite the movie revolving around him. The plot, well, there is barely a plot on display here. And while the martial art sequences may be more realistic, the filmmakers forgot to make them EXCITING.

While I wouldn't call this a TERRIBLE movie, it's pretty bland and forgettable. I would only recommend this movie to die hard fans of PM Entertainment.
