This is Gary Daniels best performance yet, although this is because he hardly has anything to say in the movie. Don't get too excited though, because the parts of the film where he does enter into some dialogue, he blatantly reminds us of how bad an actor he really is. Especially, the part where he saves the young kids from a potential house fire, he shows all the acting talents that you would expect from a giraffe.
The film is supposedly set in a Christmas eve riot which has taken place due to tension between blacks and whites in suburban America. Although, apart from stolen footage, the only evidence we have that a riot is actually taking place is an annoyingly recurring news report which shows the same street with a couple of burning cars in the background.
We are then subject to a Rambo-esq suicide mission with the Daniels rescuing the British ambassador's daughter, taking care of anyone who dares get in his way in the riot torn streets (a couple of burning cars). We are subjected to this for about 80 minutes of the 90 minute running time. To say the least it gets extremely tedious as we see the Daniels throwing guys through windows, over cars, we even see guys in roller blades and motor bikes on the attack.
After about half an hour, it simply gets too predictable and not even a surprise appearance by the Napier can save the day.
