An entertaining action-rescue movie with a different twist
21 April 2004 | by (Oxnard, California) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on DVD and for a low budget film it had a big budget look with really good photography and interesting locations. The story was very well written and full of surprises as it unfolds. The weakest link in the chain, however, is the lead actor Loren Avedon, but he is shored up by really good performances from Francesco Quinn as a humorous side-kick who can also kick some ass although he is always needing to be rescued and the late Brion James who also adds humor to the action. Lisa Crosato as the fiancee who needs to be rescued by Avedon is solid and very attractive in a wholesome girl-next-door way. When all the action attempts by Avedon and Quinn seem to be failing, Avedon has to rely on his ESP gift to locate his loved one and save her. When she is found the surprises start to unfold one after another to make it a very clever script that is well directed. If you like independent action films with good villians, you'll like this one.
