A Mexican prisoner escapes through the jungles of Chiapas crossing paths with a secret agent Lobo (David Carradine). Lobo has a crisis in his hands, and only Julio, the ex-con, can help based on his past spy experience. Lobo gives Julio money, cars and everything else he needs to travel the world and rescue the very beautiful Ambassador's daughter who has been taken by the ETA terrorist group. Lobo changes Julio's life and even his name to FUEGO (Damian Chapa), which means "fire". And that is exactly what Fuego does. He sets the world on fire as he takes out anyone in the way of getting what he needs to erase his criminal past. Written by
Damian Chapa and Jimmy Gonzales
I bought this movie because it was on Blu-ray and for only 8 bucks in the discount bin. It looks like a decent B-action movie when looking at the cover, but it is so crappy it doesn't fit in the alphabet. It is claimed to be a Latin James Bond movie, and while I am not that impressed by James Bond (with Casino Royale being an exception), this is an insult to those series.
This movie looks more like a failed student project. Uninspiring storyline, worse acting than in the average soap series, terrible action scenes, laughable special effects, not one interesting line in dialogs. This is the first movie I have seen which I can't think of anything positive. Even the "hot" babes in this movie look like they were recruited from the methadone clinic. If I was David Carradine I wouldn't have wanted to be affiliated with this movie at all. I guess he needed money and performing fellatio was the other alternative, that's the only reasonable explanation for his cooperation.
If you can find this movie for a steal, don't buy it. If someone offers it for free you can use it as a beer coaster, but don't watch it unless someone pays you to do so.
