If you enjoy the sight of cars flying and spinning through the air and exploding upon impact with the ground, then here's the movie for you my friends.
Visibly out of shape and sadly, clearly struggling here, Kenpo master, Jeff Speakman, stars in this somewhat mundane action effort as campaign leader for a political hopeful (William Shatner) who subsequently discovers that his boss is in fact secretly financing terrorists for his own ends on the side. Predictably, such knowledge puts our hero and his family in jeopardy however, as various shady characters try to wipe him from the board in order to silence him and suppress the truth that he has uncovered. Yes, it's generic action flick time again, as Speakman is subsequently, relentlessly pursued by seemingly everyone in on this conspiracy (which as it happens is just about every one in the cast!)
All this invariably translates as a series of admittedly, very well orchestrated car chase action sequences, during which the cars of Speakman's pursuers have a propensity to fly up into the air at any given moment. Sadly however, such kinetic enjoyment doesn't carry over into the rest of proceedings and it has to be said that the whole film carries a horribly rushed feel to it, taking liberties with huge leaps in logic in order to keep the running time (and presumably also the budget) down.
On a more positive note, the performances are generally fine considering the material the actors have to work with and the stunt work is good throughout at least. For Speakman fans however, this is will likely prove a decidedly disappointing effort. If you want to see the action star on peak form, my advice is to check out The Perfect Weapon instead.
