A fast, action packed film with all the essentials
14 March 2000 | by (Christchurch, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

OK, I admit. I hired this film to see Rorion Gracie in action. He delivered his lines well and with an impression of feeling. I actually developed some sentimentality for the character he played. Although the scenes where he grappled were clearly choreographed, they did display some of the effortless talent which has made this mans name a legend in the fighting world.

The rest of the film was surprisingly good. It was one of those films which could have been mediocre B-grade trash. But somehow the director ( ) pulled off a movie with several intriguing aspects. The plot had been done before, but it was made to seem all the more desperate by the shadow of execution hanging over the team if they screwed up.

All in all, it is a fast, action-packed no-brainer with all the essentials.
