Don't tarnish your respect viewing this film. Just forget it was made, like I will, after I write this.
To all the fans of this genre or the actors involved in the making of this film; I have this to say, "This one will hurt, and not in a funny way, don't do it to yourselves."
Do yourself a favor and miss this film. It tarnishes the good memories we have of these actors with its lackluster existence.
This films Tombstone should read;
"Killed by the epic mediocrity of Director Roel Reiné."
If you truly love watching Danny Trejo, no matter how bad the film he is in, or seeing Mickey Rourke deliver lines as if he was trying to understand a sign language interpreter; even if Anthony Michael Hall can do no wrong in your heart, this is not something you want to see.
It seriously damaged my respect for just about everyone involved in making it come to life.
I am a film editor, cinematographer and even worked as a Zombie stuntman. So, film, and especially cheesy low budget film is an area of expertise for me. I even have the honor of teaching a film class, "Aesthetics of Editing".
So if you got this far, at least you know now I am not just some film bashing wingnut; some jerk with no idea how film is made, why it is good, bad or meh.
