A very underrated low budget movie
29 January 2001 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is a very underrated low budget movie. It has excellent writing, photography and direction. This might be the best work Mark Dacascos has ever done as an actor. He shows a lot of range here and gives a performance that shows he's far more than just an "action" star. The supporting performances are all well done, too.
