passable B action flick
3 October 1999 | by Bob7See all my reviews

If you like action and don't set your sights too high, you won't mind this one. It's nowhere near a Rambo or Arny flick, but it's way better than "Knock Off" with Van Dumb or "Soldier of Fortune Inc" that came out lately. The plot is adequate, the action moves along ok, there's lots of weapons and hand fighting, even a tank to chase the hero down. And the babe stays out of the way most of the time, and doesn't scream or cry thank gawd. What more can ya ask. -Bob
