Freakishly bad home made movie.
30 August 2003 | by (Hollywood, CA) – See all my reviews

Do not rent this, unless you actually plan on making a bad action movie at home.

I think this was filmed in 16mm? And filmed years ago. A known Russian UFC guy, Taktarov shows up in an out-of-place-edit fighting one of the Machado brothers, he's very young in this one. But now with the advent of home pc dvd copiers, anyone can pull out those bad movies and sucker you and me to rent them at blockbuster. I actually applaud blockbuster for taking on all these halfwit dvds.

I ffx2 on my dvd just to amuse myself watching this film. It took about 10 minutes, with a few moments where I watched the odd fight and gun scenes. All done at about the same level as you and I doing it in our backyard. A big bland southern california farm backyard that is.

The editing is amazingly weird, apparently no one planned out the needed shots nor was there any second unit. The goons they used to die kept showing up over and over, one I noticed, they painted his face with black camo paint, then he showed up a scene later with all the other goons, sans face paint. I almost chuckled.

They even turned a sport I'm interested in, sort of boring and bland by showing a beginning scene at their wrestling school, revealing all the things they are going to do in the movie.

Thankfully the Machado brothers haven't made any more movies and this DVD probably won't be much of a revival.
