I like it, v1.00, 27 October 2012
Author: annevejb from UK

I found the DVD to be difficult to obtain, then it appeared at an Amazon outlet for a few months. Which does not mean that other titles will emerge someday, but maybe one or two.

This did allow me to actually see it rather than just read the reviews. Most reviews are poor, but not all. If this is really 'straight to video' then I should expect it to be weak.

I found it okay. Some aspects are weak. Sexual aspects seem tamed down a lot in order to get a censorship rating. Except that it is still rated 18, UK, and R, USA. The violence is middling strong.

So, to me it is a fun action story. I prefer it to some action movies that did make the big screen and a wider than 4x3 DVD release.

I liked the location, the hills above LA. There are other features that are partly set there and this is one of those that is good armchair tourism, to me.

From other reviews, this appears to be a remake of a Canadian feature called Blackout. Not uncommon for respected features to get the remake treatment. A respectable practice. I do not object to maybe being in a minority that likes this particular result.

The mood of the story, in some ways this reminds me of Griffin Dunne, a director who has a good way of dealing with actors and manages to draw out good performances from them.
