A fun shoot 'em up rescue movie with a different story
8 May 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is a real fun action movie with a very interesting story. It has lots of action but at the same time humor is sprinkled throughout so that it never takes itself too seriously like most of these type low budget action adventure films. Francesco Quinn is really good in the role of the sidekick to the lead actor Loren Avedon. He provides the comic relief to the weak acting of Avedon and steals every scene they have together which in itself is fun to watch. Brion James is also great as the comic book style instigator of all the twists and turns that occur throughout this very well written script that holds your interest from beginning to the surprises at the ending. There is only one female lead in this movie played by Lisa Crosato. She is also very good and I'd like to see more of her. Over all, in my opinion, I would recommend this movie as a good rental for an entertaining evening. It does not look like a low budget film in the production values just like the other film, "Dead Man's Run," I saw by this writer/director, Robert J. Hyatt. He seems to be able to take low budgets and make good looking quality films. At least with the two that I have seen.
