Storyline

Billy Ray Lee and Guile (Johnny Yong Bosch and Jason Narvy of the successful Power Ranger television series) a pair of small time thieves bungle their biggest heist, and stumble into a second chance. Robber's instinct draws them to an abandoned warehouse where they covertly witness a man inputting data into a computer. They see the man nervously stash a book into a hidden safe, then exit the warehouse. Thinking the book is valuable and with nothing to lose, the duo breaks in and steals it. Unknown to them, undercover FBI agent Kim Matsuda is observing them at a distance. She watches horrified and helpless as the two unwitting interlopers compromise a long-term sting operation set up to nab a ruthless gang of high-tech bank robbers. The book contains bank codes and passwords for accounts amounting to millions of stolen dollars! The intensity increases as Kim tails them and quickly formulates a plan to retrieve the book.

Guile: You tossed the diamonds? How could you have thrown the wrong box?
Billy Ray: I dropped them, Guile. Couldn't tell which was which.
Guile: You tossed the diamonds. All that surveillance, all those weeks of planning for a box of ROCKS AND DIRTY SOCKS!
Billy Ray: Get off my back, already! It was an honest mistake.
Guile: Honest? HONEST? Here's a news flash for you: WE ARE CROOKS!

Mindless but Quality HK style action.
25 February 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a 90 minute experience, it is not up to the standard of `Drive', as the actors clearly learnt their trade at the `Who Am I?' academy, while the action sequences are generally no better than those in the superb Mark Dacascos beat 'em-up. However, those who enjoyed `Drive', (and I thought it was wonderful!), will undoubtedly enjoy this too. You certainly won't rewind back to the start and watch it all again, but you will definitely flick back to some of the action scenes for a long time to come.

It is refreshing to see that the art of quality fight choreography is still being practiced, even if not in Hong Kong, and I would love to see what these guys could do with the budgets, time and respect afforded to the likes of Yuen Woo-ping and Corey Yuen Kuei. If you sit through the first half hour and aren't sent crazy by the atrocious dialogue then you are in for a treat. Bosch is magnificent, and can really bust a move with some magnificent acrobatics, kicks and simple acts of bravery.

If you are fortunate enough to be within 500 miles of a copy, then track it down and watch it. It's not Shakespeare. In fact, it's less articulate than Coolio in `China Strike Force', but you will be impressed with both the moves on display and the pain felt by the stunt team - (I'm pretty sure there's no safe way to land directly on your head, or be forced to head butt a wooden roof by a speeding car!?).
