STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
This is an early feature of Dolph Lundgren's,that was ,weirdly enough,made after the likes of The Punisher and Masters of the Universe.It's probably one of his better movies though.There is a complex and intriguing plot to follow that requires you to use your brain (a blessing for a Dolph film),and,although director Manny Coto allows the action to slack a bit,things certainly heat up at the end.There is an unfortunate lack of engaging dialogue for Dolph and the rest of the cast to work with and the ending is the very definition of anti climatic,but generally speaking,and certainly in comparison to a lot of other films of it's ilk,this one's great to pick up for £2.99,take home and enjoy with some crisps and beers.***
