Antonio's parents were murdered when he was a child. As an adult, he is transformed into a relentless bounty hunter, code-named "Mandrill," with the sole aim of finding the murderer and avenging his parents. Mandrill's only weakness has always been women, so he asks his uncle, a "Don Juan" expert, to instruct him in the arts of seduction. When Mandrill is hired to capture a powerful Mafioso casino owner, he soon discovers that this is the man who he has searched for all these years. But upon meeting Dominique, the beautiful daughter of the casino owner, begins an impossible romance, which can be the only obstacle to his revenge. Written by
I caught this film at Fantastic Film 2009, and was completely surprised by the kudos it got. While I'm all for a good fun ride of a film, this movie was at times so purposely campy & cheesy it was painful to watch. On top of that, the plot was paper thin, and the acting mediocre. The filmmakers stated during the Q&A that they whipped this film together so quickly they didn't have time to write a script - and it shows. The only thing making this film worthwhile to watch is the performance of the lead actor Marco Zaror. His martial arts skills are phenomenal, and under the supervision of a competent director he could become the next big action star. Should you run out and see this film? No. But is it worth a rental on a rainy day when nothing else good is available? Sure.
