A nice bit of independant movie making
19 June 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A nice film with no intention of trying to improve the genre. Jimmy Coy (Josh Barker) is a bad guy trying to find a reason to go good. He finds that reason in the very beautiful Cassandra (Kristina Cox), and that's the story. Sure the movie throws in guns, karate kicks, and explosions, but hell, it's an action film!

The DVD quality is wonderful and you can tell they spent some money on this 'straight to video' project. All the fights (except for the two women) were very realistic, and the acting wasn't too bad with the exception of the evil gang leader, he was just brutal and I suspect the reason this film couldn't make it to the big screen. I was bummed that the DVD had no real special features. Commentary from the Director would've been nice, or a Making Of featurette, or something.

Also after watching this movie, I'm shocked they changed the title from Sometimes A Hero, it sounds much more poetic than Cold Vengeance, but maybe it's too poetic for the beer-guzzling rednecks that this genre is obviously geared for. I guess brainless titles are a staple of the B-level machismo film world.

In conclusion, I lost a bet with my friends on video night and one of the guys picked Cold Vengeance from the rental shelf, I cringed and complained, but was very surprised to find myself pulled into Jimmy Coy's world by a slick director who knows how to keep a viewer. All I'll say is, well done.
