The cinematic equivalent of hara kiri
18 March 2001 | by ariane1See all my reviews

Long, drawn out torture. I'd like to say that the movie was formulaic, but given its incoherence, that would have been an improvement. First time director Fred Dresch could have used directions to the cutting room, and a very big pair of scissors. Unfortunately, the entire film is testament to the probability that he wouldn't have known what to do with the scissors anyway. The martial arts scenes are passable, and are the only thing in the movie that can be watched without the viewer squirming in embarrassment for those responsible for this film.
