Storyline

The peaceful existence of boat repairman Blake (Frank Zagarino) is destroyed when the Reverend James (Billy Drago) shows up with his disciples. Back in the days when Blake had been a member of an elite commando force, James had been his friend. But things have changed. Worried that Reverend James has fostered a cult and is planning on a mass suicide, the government sends spies to investigate. The government is also concerned because a prominent general's daughter is among the cultists. When the spies are killed, Blake is forced to reveal his true identity and join the fray to stop James and save the general's daughter. Written by IvanWong

Drago's Best?
12 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off let me just say that this is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. But without Drago the movie would slip from "bad" and into a black hole. Watching this film (did I call it a film) and in particular Drago, I could not help but think he is probably the most committed actor to have ever been filmed ... or at least the most committed since Rod Steiger in the Pawnbroker.

Now does that make it a good performance? I dare not say one way or another, but I did want more Drago because there was no telling where he was going with this character (despite the transparent script) ... surely his own spittle that he had to wipe off his own face was not in the script.

As for the other elements ... there is too much to get into, but I suppose the early warning sign was the change in font of the opening titles. Never Say Die is a sleeper, and by sleeper I mean, unless Drago is yelling out "And God..." then most likely you will fall asleep. I know I did.

So, if you are looking for one of the most over-the -top performances with action to laugh- for, this is the movie for you.
