Sadly mediocre
28 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

Gary Daniels is a talented martial artist, but he is not given many opportunities to show his talent in this movie: there are perhaps 3 or 4 fights in total, all under a minute long, that feel more like throwaways. The rest of the action is not particularly impressive, either. I was also disappointed with the parts of Eva Habermann and Françoise Yip: I was expecting them to get more involved in the action, but no: the former plays a somewhat spoiled German girl that Daniels is assigned to protect and the latter plays a globe-trotting TV reporter. In other words: for better Daniels, check out "Bloodmoon". For better Eva, check out "The Clown". And for better Françoise, probably any of her Hong Kong films will do the job. However, the "keep...keep talking, no...no that you idiot" scene (don't worry, you can't miss it) is pricelessly funny. (*1/2)
