Goofs

During the autopsy on Capt. Hallard's body the police Lt. is describing how Hallard was shot 3 times in the back, while the ME is removing a bullet from the body. The only problems are a) Capt. Hallard was shot in the lower left quadrant of the back but the ME is digging around in the area of his left shoulder, b) there is no "Y" incision which would have been made in order to examine internal organs and facilitate removal of the bullets, c) the autopsy is being performed while the body is still in a body bag.

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.
