c'mon don't watch that!
12 March 2005 | by ndrew-1See all my reviews

What a piece of crap. I find films of John Woo highly entertaining, sometimes they convey various stuff being not only violence and kick'n'shoot'em scenes. But here what we have got is just a piece of unwatchable crap. Fights, chases and shootings are not very impresive. It is very unrealistic and depressing. The plot, and events are totally not possible, even for an action movie. Dolph Lundgren, as usual, acts like a log. But that's nothing new, even his character is repulsively boring. Don't waste your time watching it because you won't gain anything. You won't kill some time with pleasure, see any good action or have a chance to ponder on human existence.
