Producer Bey Logan endured a strained relationship behind the scenes with director Daniel Lee, due to "business pressures" and metaphorically having "too many tigers on the mountain." In an interview with the Hong Kong Cinemagic website, Logan claims that on "the night of the premiere, I was so angry with everyone, I pretty much washed my hands of the film." See more »
The cast in the movie do their best to give this movie an edge!. That they fail is not their fault. Because at least they try to make something of it! When i heard that Micheal Biehn would star in this movie I honestly didn't know what to expect! To my surprise he ( together with Jun-ho Heo and Sammo Hung)provides some good acting to make the story believable! As for the direction I am a bit disappointed! The first half of the movie is too chaotic for my taste. In the second half the action scenes do pick up! Nice shootouts and one big martial arts scene between Sammo and Jun-ho Heo! This is what the fans want! It is too bad the director didn't use the actors to their fullest potential! I've seen "What price Survival" from director Daniel Lee where it also was more style than substance! It is a shame to see he hasn't learned much from those mistakes! Thanks to the cast this movie is fun to watch! Don't expect anything special,it's average!
