Better than it's production value
17 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Clearly not a film with much of a budget, it's still cool in it's own right.

Written directed and starred by Miklo from blood in blood out, it's merits outweigh its shortcomings. It's a relative 8/10

Basically it's a good fun action movie somewhat reminiscent of blood in blood out, which is what I always think of when i see this guy.

I thought that him handling a pump action shotgun with one hand and a pistol in the other was a little far fetched, but apparently it's an elite tactic, so thats cool. There's some other really intelligent stuff too.

Bottom line, the story, which includes mentally unstable lesbians (cant go wrong with that) is plenty good enuff to make it enjoyable.
