Fairly run of the mill action movie
3 November 2001 | by LorifanSee all my reviews

The movie has decent action, and a good villain played by the reliable Billy Drago.

The one thing which stands out about the film though is the presence of statuesque Kickboxing champion, Saskia Van Rijswijk, as Billy Drago's henchwoman. In an almost wordless role, the beautiful Saskia makes a stunning impression. Sadly, her screen time is very limited, and the rest of the film is merely average.

Worth watching for Van Rijswijk, but very little else.
