What a waste of money and time.
1 January 2009 | by giomanombreSee all my reviews

I knew this movie was a straight to DVD movie when I first saw it. The camera shots were obviously amateurish and it looked like a home-made video changed to DVD.

It seems I have to look at this board again, next time, before I rent a DVD. It's just another cliché action movie with an incoherent plot and even if you take your brain off it still delivers far short.

This teaches me one lesson. Before renting a DVD, stop by 'Internet Movie' database first before wasting your money renting a B, or Z quality movie.

I rate it three stars because in all honesty, I did see the movie from beginning to end, and was hooked to see what is going on -- but it still felt that I was looking at garbage quality material and felt like I just wasted my time.
