How Does Something Like This Get Made???
6 March 2001 | by HKFANSee all my reviews

I have come to the conclusion that there are GOOD B-Action movies and then there are AWFUL B-Action movies and this one falls into the latter category. A half-way decent premise with a terrorist creating a bio-weapon in an abandoned undersea lab and a Navy SEAL and a government operative being dispatched to confiscate the weapon and eliminate the terrorist. The interiors were obviously shot in the basement of an industrial complex, the acting shoddy (with a very poor script) and awful direction. If you have a choice to pick up this film or another film...opt for the other. You'll be happy you did!
