Not bad At All
30 December 2008 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

It helps me perhaps that I really like films such as this gritty, action packed film.

Sure, it's no classic, by any means, but I liked enough to buy the VHS tape, and I would buy the film on DVD, but it's never been released that way.

The main attraction for me is Justin Lazard, an actor who has never gotten the respect he deserves, or the roles either, for that matter. He's just perfect for this type of film, and his charisma and sex appeal shine here.

Too bad he's never been featured in more mainstream films (Species 2 being the exception).

I believe the film is well worth the visit, and I believe I'll go watch it again right now.
