Good Chemistry Between Two Leads, Lots Of Action. A Definite Winner!
29 February 2000 | by (Robinson, IL) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent "B" movie. Blanks and Piper work really well together. The story is decent. But story doesn't count, action does. And there is more than enough action to keep people happy. Blanks and Piper are good in the numerous fight scenes. Overall a really good movie that any action fan should check out.
