Very unwatchable.

As a fan of bad movies, I must say that this cheesy action movie wasn't that great. I think this movie's greatest downfall is that it tries to take itself seriously, which can make a pleasantly bad movie unwatchable (i.e. Omega Doom). I tend to notice horrible budget cuts, like firing a gun once, playing a stock "machine gun" sound bite, and using shaky camera work to try to cover up the fact that the gun only fires once. Also, why don't any of the guns in this movie have any recoil? Are they magic? Also, it quite bothered me how characters in the movie kept referring to a "sawed off" shotgun, although the shotgun in question was a standard 20" length. The ex stripper chick wasn't that attractive, and the main cop appeared to have the IQ of a piece of string. There was a tiny bit of nudity to redeem the movie, but I recommend picking up a better cheesy action movie, like Karate Kid or Con Air.
