Storyline

Evil druglord Brigman wants a test subject for his new performance-enhancing drug "Deadly Jade" so he kidnaps Danny, an expert martial artist. Unfortunately Brigman's crazy second-in-command Eddie kills Danny's girlfriend, sending Danny into a rage. He tries to escape but Brigman force-feeds him an overdose of Deadly Jade, sending Danny's combat potential into overdrive. Danny decimates Brigman's henchmen before facing Brigman himself, who has also decided to have a taste of the drug. This leads to a climactic martial arts showdown between them, ending in Danny killing Brigman, before succumbing to the side effects of Deadly Jade, spiralling down into the depths of madness amidst the chaos of the battle.

Kick Ass Action!
27 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Kick Ass action all the way in this cult short film from Ross Boyask, the maker of 'Left For Dead'.

I first saw this film on Stop Kung Fu! with Johnathan Ross and have to say was pretty impressed.

Okay so like most Modern Life? films it could have done with a bit more on the money side but what they had was spent well and the added bonus of seeing now established actors like Brendan Carr, Gordon Alexander and Scott Adkins was an added bonus.

Storyline wise it's a simple revenge tale which see's Scott Adkins kicking the tail of bad guys Alexander and Carr.

But as always it's the action that counts and the action here is god damn impressive and set the standard for what followed with 'Left For Dead'.

Heart pounding, kick arse action film. Get it!
