Not bad.... not good either
23 May 1999 | by (Watertown, New York) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie because I wanted a movie where thought process was minimal. That is what I got. There was lots of explosions and shoot outs, and no big name stars. Jack Scillia played the take no crap one man army of this movie. He shot people, blew things up and in the end he romanced the girl. Sounds like James Bond you say? Well it is very similar. There is even a character that resembled Odd-Job from "Goldfinger". This was not the worst movie I have ever seen ( the worst being "Trucks" and "Ape" ) but I was down there. There were many acting problems due to the fact that no one could act. And the fact that the camera kept zooming on Jack's eyes, I am clueless. I give it a *1/2 out of ****.
