The definative B movie fight flick
17 April 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This film Is actually quite good, More explination of why the killer (Darren Shahlavi) wants (gary daniels) is needed. but the fight scenes make up for the lack of story. Shahlavi kicks ass in a major way and looks great too he makes this film worth watching. It's definatly the best that Daniels has done and Chuck Jeffreys is actually very funny. The fights are really well done but the idea deserves more time on the script. for fight fans this is one of the best film you could wish to see,I'd love to see Shahlavi take on Jet Li or Jackie Chan. and yes the Bloodmoon needs more work.
