Trivia

Daneya Mayid initially became involved with the feature after he approached Don Wilson at a martial arts gathering and asked for his autograph. Wilson was impressed by Mayid's appearance and physical abilities, and subsequently suggested to his producers that he be cast in the film. According to Wilson, Mayid is the only person to break into movies as a result of asking a performer for an autograph. See more »

average, rather disappointing film.
11 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Now just too clarify I wasn't expecting a brilliantly acted, exceptionally well crafted story when I purchased this DVD.

I was however expecting some quality martial arts fight scenes but I was disappointed in this regard as well........there were 2 or 3 that were fairly good but none of them were great........

The story itself was poorly written, the dialogue was weak and the script needed at least 2 or 3 more re-writes...even for a "B" movie this was weak.

It wasn't a bad idea just needed better execution........one watch for me was more than enough.

On another note, I bought this DVD in England as i am a resident of this country, it also doesn't include the "making of documentary" listed on the back of the DVD box.

Also despite "lorezno lamas" being shown on cover he's only in about 10 minutes of the film..............

OK rental if you are a big Don "the dragon" Wilson fan........but wouldn't recommend a purchase.
