Trivia

The text of the (real) Bandera file on the computer screen reads: "DEMIAN, BANDERA E You would think that a huge file like this would tell you something. Not so. I just open up my paint program and let my brain dribble out on the monitor. Bandera doesn't eve(n) exist, you know. He is just a character in a movie! I can't believe that I'm trying to write bio on a man who doesn't even exist. Now I have to write a second collumn. Oh, the tedium... This paragraph won't even have the benefit of my sense of humor. I'm so over having to write this blurb that I can't think of anything to say. This is a real bummer. PRESS ENTER FOR UPDATE" See more »

Grisly killings and revenge by one army man named the Jaguar
6 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

The picture focuses to Derek(Maxwell Caufield) is a former government Ops agent named SOC living with his family.When the starring's wife(Fiona Hutchinson) and son are cruelly killed , Derek plots revenge only to find the fugitive killer(Trevor Goddard)and hoodlums(Vincent Klyn) are well hidden and he must exact his own form of justice. Later training by a martial arts instructor(John Fujioka), he assumes the identity of The Jaguar, taken from his son's drawings .He's a new hero in town , an avenger who woos to revenge against the murderer who previously put behind bars. He asks another undercover agent as toymaker(Paul Bartel) weapons , delivering him crossbow and explosive arms.

This is a low budget movie with action packed, suspense, grisly violence, noisy shooting and spectacular fighting . The best film is the training on lethal struggle skills at the hands of a martial arts master with certain similarly to ¨Karate Kid¨ style.The motion picture displays a plethora of known faces and famed secondary actors, Stacy Keach(Long riders), Linda Blair(immortal in the Exorcist), Paul Bartel (famous cult director), Vincent Klyn( usual baddie in Albert Pyun films:Cyborg), Trevor Goddard (Jag) and the protagonist, Maxwell Caufield(Dragon storm, Submerged). The motion picture is professionally directed by David DeCocteau, a B series director ,he has gone on to produce(Trancers) and direct more than sixty movies over the past twenty years, such as : Doctor Alien, Puppet master,Skeletons(his best movie) Brotherhood series, among others. This one is entertaining though with very short budget
