entertaining low-budget independent action film
17 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is almost impossible to make an action film without a lot of money these days, due to rising costs of special FX, but also due to rising cost of insurance. So an entertaining low-budget independent action film is a rarity, and a welcome one.

With a plot crossing elements of "High Noon" and "Rio Bravo", about a lone cop facing a gang that has its boss recently released from prison, the film obscures its limited amount of action (the costly part, remember) with about equal doses of high drama and melodramatic touches of Mexican-style gangster soap-opera. But there are two big shoot-outs that are very well handled, and which even add a bit of Spaghetti-Western to the mix.

Speak about the mix, the music is very cool, by the way.

There are a couple real veterans in the cast, as well as a number of young actors of promise. Chino XL as the cop and Coolio as one of the gangsters are both impressive and charismatic - with some practice and a good agent, they should have showing up all over the place after their work here, they're good.

No "New Jack City", but worth a look.
