Ed Wood From Beyond The Grave???

10/10

This appears to be a no-budget remake of the Luc Besson film "The Professional". The film is so poorly constructed that it makes you wonder if it was intentional. Dialog is often recorded improperly, the lighting is hit and miss, and if only the flashbacks of the scenes we just watched were cut, this movie would run a little over sixty minutes! This is a must own film, destined to become a cult classic!

Disappointing low budget thriller!

10/10

This film could have been so much better. It has the great talent of Scott Baio who seems to be one of the only people who stop it from sinking completely. I was disappointed especially by the bad guy performances, Don Shroud acted like he was doing pantomime. His bad cop performance was crude and disgusting. The special effects could not help things as they were shaky and low-budget. Scott Baio and the young girl he rescues are the only actors that give this film saving grace, their performances however are ruined by the rest of the cast who seem to be in pantomime mode! The ending was probably one of the greatest disappointments, along with the incoherent final shootout. For die hard fans of Scott Baio only!
