Daniel Bernhardt is a truly underrated talent.
17 November 2001 | by johnmorghenSee all my reviews

Yes, I am a big fan of Mr. Bernhardt and his work, and this film is no exception. I couldn't ask for much more, as I felt the film's 90 minute duration, was well spent. You've got Bernhardt in the lead, followed by another underrated talent, Brian Thompson and Robert "The Man Himself" Englund, rounding out the billing in a meaty role.

Overall, this is a well directed actioner, from, the man who made "LIONHEART", Sheldon Lettich. If you're a fan, check it out. I should know... I'm a self-taught, self-licensed grindhouse practitioner and historian... Dig It.
