Immediately prior to brain surgery (implantation of the microchips), the operating room nurse's hair is loose and flowing, not bound up and covered as it should be. Loose hair in a sterile, clean operating room is a huge and obvious "no-no." See more »
Notwithstanding several references that are made to Ian Fleming's creation James Bond, the weakest overblown features from that uneven film series are cinematic works of art when compared with this cheaply made and farcical affair wherein stolen computer chips, if embedded within a human's brain stem, converts a garden variety espionage agent into a remarkable being who possesses total fluency in numerous and widely disparate languages, complete mastery of over two dozen martial art disciplines, and thoroughgoing familiarity with advanced developments for scientific fields, including physics, mathematics, chemistry, et alia; a considerable metamorphosis, indeed, for two trailer park denizens residing in Fresno, California, who happen to come upon the purloined chips and are subsequently assumed by those intelligence agency personnel responsible for the devices (without soliciting proof) to actually be government spies of some sort. The pair of ersatz operatives, joined by a female agent who has also benefited from the cranial surgery, is delegated by their handler to remove counterfeit currency plates from a criminal ringleader, thereupon becoming embroiled in a battle to the death with this individual and his minions, thus presenting the spurious duo opportunities to test the worth of their freshly implanted fighting skills, and that is, of course, what this movie is about, i.e., not development of allegory, but rather opportunities for a host of stunt men to have at it, which they do with abandon, but for a viewer possessing even partially operative sensibilities, this unsatisfactorily written, directed and produced piece will be abandoned in its turn, and in quick order.
