Trivia

This movie was one of a three picture deal with PM Entertainment originally intended for Loren Avedon who turned it down looking for something bigger and Don Wilson signed on instead. The two other movies were Out for Blood (1992) and Cyber Tracker (1994). Avedon later said that he regretted his decision. See more »

Surprisigly good,
2 August 2008 | by kurciasbezdalasSee all my reviews

This is probably the best Don Wilson's movie. The plot was even too good for a kick-boxing movie and also a good directors work. The fighting scenes were sometimes great and sometimes getting to slow and not taking itself seriously but that's OK because it still was enjoyable. There were also a few funny moments and that appeared unusual to me because usually this kind of movies are taking itself too seriously and even if they try to joke it's just doesn't work. I rated it 10/10 because as a 90's American martial arts movie it was surprisingly good. Not like many other this kind of films, this one really has a plot, now that's a big plus. The movie may look sometimes naive but that's OK if you like 90's American martial arts films you should watch it.
