A few rare moments of Brilliance!
29 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to admit, I gave this film an 8 only because I think the 4.5 was just a tad bit low. I probably would have given it a 6.5 and the only reason it deserved that was the action and camera work.

This movies feel is pretty cheesy..But it is well shot and some of the action scenes are pretty amazing. The bowling alley scene makes the whole movie worth watching. It's truly a rare treat.

Michael Biehn has a true grit look to him and he does pretty well. I felt like he out-shined Joong-Hoon Park and their chemistry was not very special. But to be fair, The writing seems like it would have been tough to work around for anyone....

After watching the film, I was glad that I had spent the time to sit through it and I'd watch it again right now. There really is some Awesome moments sprinkled throughout the film which makes it quite memorable.
