This little movie was on sale for 5 bucks at my local VIDEOTRON, and i got it because of 2 reasons... First i like the martial art gender, and second i like Ray Park and kowns he can fight and surprisingly is a decent actor considering what he do.
This movie turned out pretty well even tough the first action sequence let me wondering as the fake blood and cheap CGI announced a bad movie. Let just say they balanced kinda well the action and story, and the low budget CGI was not all over the place and didn't bother me much, as it was obvious they where looking for a comic book look.
The 3 main characters where interesting, but i am still wondering why they gave Ray Park the gun fights while he is a MAJOR martial artist and would had put up AWESOME unarmed fights.
The swordman i didn't knew him at all, and he was very decent. The templar was one of the guy i saw a few time in small roles in martial arts movies, one of his most notorious being Vladimir Sykov in UNDISPUTED 3 with Scott Adkins. He is bulked, work the part well, a little bit bad as an actor... well maybe more than a little bit, but considering the part he had to play i won't mind too much.
Than the rest... well... cheesy story, and its obvious this could had NEVER been release in theatre, but at the same time i had fun, so what more could i ask for a small little 5 dollars movie like that.
I can't help but compare this to Cross with Brian Austin Green i saw a couple days ago. Same type of movie, comic book style, cheesy on the story, but this one worked way better, as we have 3 lead to root for and a couple side characters, unlike Cross where they trow 10 or more(i lost count) of main characters at us and you barely know(or care) about them. Here i was actually caring and rooting for the characters and i think this is what helped the movie being a GOOD cheese fest.
