Robert L. Taylor III's AONN Movie Review
2 January 2005 | by aonnSee all my reviews

Slightly low-budget, but much better than a stupid vampire movie. And again, not the world-class production of the Art of War, but a decent sit-down and storyline. The big-set effects seem to have been saved for the final scenes, but nevertheless a chilling premise.

This is another freaky tale of mind manipulation weapons development and attempts at proliferation, thereof.

Don't go out of your way, but if you do, it's certainly a decent fix for any action movie buff.

Die-hard Wesley Snipes fans won't want to miss this one, however. Somewhere near the beginning of the movie, Snipes who plays Dean Cage, U.S. Army black ops soldier serial # 190405243, reminds us that he is one of the most dangerous international-level fighters both on and off camera. Thus, the hand-to-hand combat sequences alone are worth the time spent in this regard.
