B-movie action in the shadow of Tarantino
17 December 2002 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

A bunch of cool gangsters are robbing a suitcase full of money from an Italian mafia bosses' headquarter and leaving for the country side for another big coup, but the Italian mob is already hunting them for bloody revenge... that's the whole plot of this hardcore action b-movie flick by Joey Travolta, the little brother of big John.

Travolta wants to direct like his big idols - Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Martin Scorsese, Brian de Palma, Walter Hill, Sam Peckinpah, John Woo and the Die Hard movies... but Travolta is none of the above but only a b-movie director which you can see in every single second of this film! The story is to flat and often-told, the dialogues are bland and not witty at all, and the actors seem partially comatose... nobody here really seemed to be too enthusiastic about his job.

Although Joey Travolta collected a lot of second-league stars of hard-boiled undergound and action movie fame around like Jeff Fahey, Michael Madsen, James Russo and Gary Busey, even those rather good actors can't add any quality to this trash. Even the shootings and showdowns are rather boring, and too many slow motions rather serve to say good night to the viewer instead of taking his breath away. This film is alright for two hours of mindless action fun after midnight, but I recommend to choose the originals instead!
