Was waiting for it and it's worth all the wait!!!

Unlucky Stars (English) 6/10 Genre: Action Director: Dennis Ruel Cast: Dennis Ruel, Ken Quitugua, Sari Sabella, Vlad Rimburg, Emmanuel Manzanares, Sam Hargrave Country: USA Language: English Year: 2015

I have been waiting for this film for a while and I think it took a long time to release which is pretty understandable considering the fact that it's an independent film. I'm a big fan of the LBP stunt group, Vlad Rimburg and all the guys who are involved in their short projects which has been out there for a number of years. They have been making numerous short martial arts films which can be found on their respective channels on You Tube, which I've been following for a while now. The best part is that they are true to basics, their action choreography and stunt are simply awesome as it doesn't involve any kind of CGI or special effects which they have done time and again in their short films. Unlucky Stars is the latest offering by them and it sure lives up to the expectation similar to what the Z-Team did with their film The Price Of Success, in fact I felt Unlucky Stars was better in terms of technical aspect which is pretty remarkable for a low budget Independent film. The story is about a private detective and his newly hired associate who get involved in a bizarre chain of events. Dennis Ruel of Rope A Dope fame not only directs but has also written and starred in it, so full marks to him on this effort and yes he did kick some ass in the film as well. The film stars their regular team if you follow their channel that includes the likes of Ken Quitugua, Emmanuel Manzanares etc. then we have Sam Hargrave of Captain America fame and Vlad Rimburg who is also the fight choreographer in the film. The fights are really well choreographed and there is plenty of them for the delight of any Martial arts fan. I also loved the editing of the film which has some really nice cuts on occasions which is pretty rare from couple of guys who are rather known for their fighting skills, once again its Dennis Ruel and Vlad Rimburg. A worth watching film for any action fan and trust me you won't be disappointed.
