Paco Christian Prieto,
The 1990s brought forward a lot of action movies aping the basic plot of DIE HARD. Most of those movies were not very good, and this particular effort is no exception. The heart of the movie - the action sequences - is particularly badly botched. While Jeff Wincott manages to show here that he is talented in martial arts, director Kurt Anderson doesn't manage to give the fight sequences much of a spark. They instead come across as tired and routine. Anderson also doesn't do very well with other parts of the movie. To be fair, he was obviously working with an very low budget, so the cheapness of the entire affair (except for some good photography) couldn't be his fault. But he can certainly be blamed for a slow-moving story that is totally drained of energy and tension, as well as being unable to coax a lively performance out of Wincott. The movie also shows signs it was a troubled production, with some possible post-production tinkering done to try and save things. It didn't work.
