Better than expected
22 May 2001 | by (Somewhere in Australia) – See all my reviews

To tell the truth, I wasn't expecting this movie to be much different than all the other low-budget actioners on the shelf at my local video store. I can say that any ideas I had about this movie are wrong.

It may be low budget but it certainly isn't bad. To start off with the cast, even though I don't know any of them, do quite a good job. The two standouts are Olivier Gruner and Robert Townsend. These two men have to be the funniest team up since Murtaugh and Riggs! Robert Townsend is incredibly funny and delivers some truly funny lines throughout the movie. Olivier Gruner plays the straight man to his jokes perfectly. The other good thing about this movie is that the plot unfolds so well that, by the time all the explaining is done, you don't feel confused about it at all. A perfect nights entertainment 7/10
