13 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just purchased this DVD cheap, costing a buck (plus an extra 10% off employee discount). At 90 cents, I still didn't get my money's worth.

The plot is sometimes difficult to follow, but a few scenes of dialog make it possible to do so. Steven Nijjar (who?) stars as Nick Kanel, a soccer goalie, who is also a martial arts expert on the side. He finds his teammates being taken in by corrupt promoters promising big bucks for those willing to throw the big game, for the Gold Cup, and bruises and bullets for those who, like Kanel, are too scrupulous. Kanel puts his fighting skills to use in battling these creeps.

The ending is unbelievably campy, and the acting is unbearable. Nijjar's was so bad it wasn't good enough to qualify for a Golden Rasberry award. I guess even the Razzies have standards.

The one saving grace, sort of, was the occasional comic relief provided by a couple of Kanel's teammates, one of whom resembles Doogie Howser.

Erik Estrada, who plays one of the bad guy promoters, got top billing only he because he was by far the best known. He must have been really desperate for work.
