If you like chopsockey movies, check out Deadly Ransom.
23 August 2000 | by (L.A. California) – See all my reviews

If you like chopsockey movies, Deadly Ransom is for you. The fighting, gunplay, death and violence are endless and quite entertaining if you like this kind of action (and most of the male ,12-39 demographic just loves it) then buy this DVD baby off the web for 15 bucks. The late Brion James plays a delicious villain as the cocaine snorting Bobby Rico. The best part of this film was the strong performance delivered by Lisa Crosato who plays the beautiful kidnapped rich girl. Although the plot is paper thin, Crosato manages to bring depth and believability to her portrayal. Loren Avedon handles the action but should probably be sent to actors jail for twenty to life. Although this isn't academy award stuff, it's still fun to watch.
