Goofs

In the scene in the alley when Luke avoids the black pickup truck, he drops into the pickup bed and rolls off the back, which is open. Yet, when you see the truck pull out of the alley at the other end, there is back gate on the pickup bed, which would have prevented him rolling out. See more »

don't let what you see on the video cover fool you
9 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was going to be an all action, shoot em up, kickin' arse type movie. This was totally the opposite. The movie kind of moves slow and lags behind at times. I expected a lot better from Mark Dacascos because I totally enjoyed the movie "Drive." I felt like it was beautifully well done and the action scenes were astounding. I don't get why this movie would be listed under "Action" because it hardly had any action in it. It was more of a "lite thriller" type movie. I felt like this film could've been much better. This movie is only for people who enjoy movies like this. If possible, I would highly recommend that you skip this Mark Dacascos entry, unless you're a big fan of him.
