During the gunfight on the roof of the parking garage, you can see the squib flash when the big guy in the white shirt gets shot. The squib actually goes off AFTER he has already started to react to getting shot. Also, as he hits the ground you can see the cable used to trigger the squib coming out of his left pant leg.

Great low budget film making.
12 November 2005 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

This film had a shoe string budget yet it still conveyed its action story very well. Imagine if you were making a movie and had no budget but still gave it your best shot. This is exactly what this film does. Some clever writing executed brilliantly by Loren Avedon and his sidekick buddy was also pleasing.

This film also had a really cool idea of subtly including a re-match in it's 3rd act between Loren Avedon and Matthias Hues. The pair originally featured in one of the greatest showdowns in cult film history in Corey Yuen's Hong Kong classic "No Retreat No Surrender 2".

The re-match however was not very well executed. It lasted for a very short time and wasn't anywhere near as explosive and dynamic as the one of the original fight. This may have been due to Matthias Hues playing an uncredited cameo in the film. However the idea was still there.

All up I'd recommend this film to B film audiences, Loren Avedon fans and people who are thinking of making their own movie.
