Goofs

During the final showdown, Angel picks up the 1911 that Chance put down on the ground before he began to fight Z. In the first two shots of her aiming the gun at Z, the slide is locked back, indicating that the gun is out of bullets. However somehow in the third shot she is able to fire the gun without ever having visibly chambered a new round. See more »

Er? it's not the FIFTH commandment
5 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It does actually say quite a lot about the movie that they think the fifth commandment is "thou shalt not kill" It isn't. Gives you some idea of the lack of attention involved in producing the movie. As a kick-fest, with guns and explosions thrown-in, it stands with some merit, though the production values are not of the best. The plot is fairly simple, yet made confusing in an attempt to give it depth. The acting is pretty good given the limited script. The sound track is pointlessly noisy in all the wrong places. In all, it gives the feeling of an early eighties effort: a pleasant enough diversion for a rainy day, but don't expect to be blown away.
