Remake of Five Gates
8 October 2015 | by drystyxSee all my reviews

This is a B movie, action, with lots of gun play and violence.

It's also got too much in common with FIVE GAES TO HELL to not be somewhat of a remake of it. But instead of captive nurses, these are captive models, whose men folk are killed, and it's "women" vs. mercenaries.

Even though it's not a war film, as "Five Gates" was, the evil men here are soldiers for a "war lord".

This is very edgy, well directed, and with lots of famous character actors.

It's also better than "Five Gates", because it takes a lot more risks, and dares to be different. It isn't as "contrived" for the most part.

The sound quality is less than desirable, though. The lady singing at the beginning and end is not delivering "studio" sound. The song is very distorted, for whatever reason. Perhaps one of the worst "sound" mixes in film History. It sounds as though they actually taped her song in the jungle itself.
