Storyline

When reporter Steve Roberts acts on a call from his good friend, Dr. Charlie Venco, urging him to leave Seattle and report on a hot scientific story in Bulgaria, he ends up in a world of disappearance, death and deception. It begins with Dr. Venco's suspicious death and funeral where he meets Alexa Campos, a beautiful associate of the doctor's. A romantic liaison between Alexa and Steve is thwarted by local thugs and military police who are all after the meddlesome Roberts. Roberts discovers what he should not - that the supposed blood research is in fact the development of a 100% addictive drug "Blue Mist" - and that Charlie was in on the whole deal with the Russian Mob. Roberts and Alexa must find a way out: their only hope being some pretty quick thinking and the best martial arts to ever hit Bulgaria. Written by Anonymous

Not too good
8 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just about everyone on here is correct – this is strictly a lower tier Gary Daniels film that suffers from a lacklustre script, disinterested direction, and many, many mistakes. Daniels deserves more than this, I mean come on! One time me and Gary were out on a shoot in South Africa, and were boozed up on the local hooch, and I swear he somehow managed to roundhouse kick a giraffe right in the jaw! But here he is, running around Sofia in Bulgaria, trying to get to the bottom of something or other.

You see Gary is a reporter travelling to Bulgaria to see his scientist mate, and see him he does, getting carried out of his house in a coffin. Before you can say "Riot and Epicentre are much better films that this" Gary's got a seven foot tall stripper sidekick and is up against the Russian mafia and the Bulgarian military! Plus, everyone's got a secret and you can't help but think that Daniels should have just got the first flight home to blighty or Australia or America or wherever he's supposed to be from this time.

There's a staggering amount of continuity errors in this film (microphones, camera shadows, extras grinning at the camera), and too many 'wait a minute…how?' moments for anything to be believable, but Daniels is likable enough (although he adopts a strange stance throughout this film…you'd have to see it to know what I mean)…there's plenty of other Daniels films out there before you should try this one.
