So and so film. But not a lot of action..
28 August 1999 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

When the bullet hits the bone.. Hmm? Well, this film is not as exciting as I expected it to be..

Basically, it tells the story of a doctor (Jeff Wincott) who witnesses a harassment involving a man and a woman..

Somehow he interferes and tries to help the woman (Michelle Johnson) out of it, but then gets shot..

Whilst recovering he realizes that the man who shot him is working for a drug dealer Nicholas Turner.

Determined to help the woman Lisa, he goes and grabs a briefcase which has names of all the people involved in the drug syndicate. Soon the doctor decides to settle the score against Turner once and for all..

In all, this film is watchable but I'm afraid there's not a lot of action to this one. I know Jeff Wincott is one of those martial arts kind of hero. I thought he would show off more kicks and that but in this one, he's just trying to prove his acting ability is more than up to scratch..

If you want to see this film, by all means do so, especially on a rainy day..
