Probably Lamas' best
31 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, understand that Lamas will never get a compliment out of me in regards to his acting. He just can't. This movie, however, was probably his best one. He is a cop who is also a martial arts expert and knows how to speak Cambodian. While assisting another agency on a case involving Oriental gangsters, he becomes involved in a sinister criminal plot that eventually endangers himself, his friends, and his family.

The plot is fairly familiar, but still workable. This movie also lets Lorenzo display his martial arts skill, which is considerable. That must be given to his credit. He should do more movies like this one and he would probably be a greater success. Hey, if Jean-Claude could, why not Lorenzo? Overall, this is a pretty good movie: entertaining, good action, decent bad guys, okay hero. Not outstanding, but still entertaining.
