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.

Fantastic stunts, horrible everything else
25 August 2005 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Okay, let's get this out of the way early – this movie is terrible. It features horrible acting, annoying characters, a clichéd script and shoddy shot-on-video cinematography. So why on earth would I recommend this to anyone? Because of the amazing fight scenes. Co-directors Koichi Sakamoto and Makoto Yokoyama may not be immediately recognizable names to action genre enthusiasts, but chances are you have seen their work. Both supply the action choreography for the US versions of the POWER RANGERS. However, Koichi's main claim to fame is that he was the stunt coordinator on Steve Wang's THE GUYVER 2 and DRIVE. Anyone familiar with those films will know what I am talking about. With this film, both Koichi and Makoto's stunt teams (Alpha Stunt and AAC respectively) combine to create some strong stunt work.

Whereas celebrated HK veteran Yuen Woo Ping's Hollywood efforts have become increasingly airborne and unrealistic (THE MATRIX films are a perfect example), this team's style is reality based and hard-hitting. Some of the stunts in this one are absolutely amazing. Fights break out every 10 minutes or so and they are flawlessly choreographed. Major set pieces include a fight on top of moving cars, a skydiving gun/fist fight and the obligatory warehouse fight where guys bump off the equipment as if it were rubber. Lead Johnny Yong Bosch (formerly the Black Ranger on the POWER RANGERS) does a majority of his own stunts and is amazingly agile. One wishes he would get more work to showcase his martial arts talent. There are also three instances of stunts gone wrong that made it into the final film (you will know them when you see them).
