During the gunfight scenes in the hallway, a number of bullet holes are produced in the walls. Before the gunfight starts the hallway has no bullet holes in it. As soon as the first couple of shots are fired, dozens of holes are shown in the walls, yet the gun has fired barely a couple of rounds.
All of the walls appear to be made of plasterboard and where the holes have appeared there are tattered paper triangles pointing into the hallway. This would only be seen if the projectile going through the wall was coming from one of the rooms, not from in the hallway where the gunfight took place. The effects crew must have set charges for the bullet holes on the far side of the walls to produce the holes, thus leaving the tell tale paper triangles. See more »
Story commences with a group of mercenaries led by Frank Martin (Chris Vance) to rescue a diplomat targeted for assassination. The group is betrayed from within and Martin has no choice other than to leave Jimmy Reeves (Daniel Fathers) behind. A chance encounter 1 1/2 years later sets the scene for Jimmy to exact revenge on Frank by enlisting the same group to destroy Franks credibility as a reliable transporter. Frank sets out to find out who was involved which leads to a shoot out at Jimmy's flat and the group Jimmy was working for to handle the exchange of their property with Frank.
Unfortunately the script is disjointed and makes little sense at times. The fight scenes are quite clumsy, with Fathers acting in some of the scenes below standard. The use of sex scenes does little other than to add some eye candy. All up a poor showing from the first episode.
