The best of Lorenzo!
15 December 2003 | by supertom-3See all my reviews

I'm not a fan. His movies are generally awful, but this was kind of fun in a dumb dort of way. The film has a ridiculous idea not worth repeating and also every cliche in the action book.

Lorenzo "look at my biceps and my lovely hair" Lamas poses his way through various fist fights and gun battles. The is some decent action there though that makes the film watchable. The fights in particular showcase Lorenzo's Martial arts skills.

Overall this is worth the 3 pound I paid for it on DVD. This is a good friday night after the pub movie, at home with your mates and a curry, when you don't want meaningful entertainment of any kind. When you want to see the sort of film that is inane and generally cheap and tacky. **
