Storyline

Criminal Gavin Matthews finds himself an unwilling recruit, who's identity and past has been erased by "The Corporation," a secret underground organization that acts as a rogue "Justice Department," righting the wrongs the courts cannot. Now, held with other "recruits" at The Corporation's training and reeducation facility, Matthews and the others will become useful and professional assassins...or they will be eliminated. As his training is completed, Matthews and his trainer discover The Corporation's true purpose and learn they are to be eliminated when their assignment is complete. Now they must execute their own form of justice before it's too late. Written by Anonymous

Poor Shannon Lee and Michael Dorn
31 August 2003 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

All I can say about this film is that it appeared to have been filmed in someone's loft or an abandoned building. It also looks as if the budget mainly went to Shannon Lee and Michael Dorn and left nothing for the actual production itself. Avoid this film like the plague.
