Goofs

The "Royal Canadian Mounted Police" do not wear the classic red serge jackets, that's only for special events and even there there's only a handful of them. The "mounties" on duty in the movie should be wearing normal police style uniforms in dark colors. The production had the uniforms completely wrong and almost comedic. See more »

Good DTV action !
5 March 2014 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

This is exactly how to do a low budget DTV movie right. The location is quite simple, yet big enough to carry the movie and what will happen. The characters are pretty good. I would say the protagonists where fine, the Ranger was lovable, the black dude was OK, but the show stealer is definitely Van Damme. He has been going out of his comfort zone lately in different type of role, and after having seen him in Expendables 2, i knew he could pull off a bad guy.

In this movie, he is just so over the top and nuts its amazing. He is really what give a special feeling to the movie. In lots of his post 2010 or so roles he appeared as a depressing, never smiling anti-hero and even tough some of these movies where nice(6 Bullets, Assassination Games) i was eagerly waiting for him to do something else which he is doing with this and Welcome to the Jungle.

I loved the role of Xander, and he got the hair cut to go with it ! The story itself is pretty simple yet OK, don't expect a high budget of special effects, but the fights are done nicely and there is enough action to satisfy most fans.

Overall a nice addition to your Van Damme collection, and for a guy that is now not so young, i am glad he can still pull out movies like that.
