Suprisingly entertaining low budget action film
8 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Relic Hunter" director Mark Roper goes for the John Woo action style here and the result is a surprisingly entertaining action film.

"The Circuit"s Bryan Genesse gives a decent performance as a wise cracking FBI agent sent out to bring down Cuban terrorists and help his kiddnapped friend. He is assigned to work with a sexy agent who is the sister of his MIA friend (played by J. Cynthia Brooks who later went on to make the adult flick "Intimate Nights"). Later in the mission he is captured by the terrorists and injected with a chip that programs him to fight with them. There are many excellently choreographed fights (Genesse helped in the martial arts choreography), cool shoot outs and an uncountable amount of explosions. It is definately a must for action fans. However, try not to examine the story too hard because it does get a little muddled.

2 and 1/2 out of 4
