A taut, tense action story.
18 July 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The only reason this film isn't more well known is the budget. I'm sure it was low, but it shows lots of action. The fights deliver, and some of the fighters are especially menacing. Well written. And that's all I have to say.
