Better then most recent martial arts movies, but still nothing amazing. The type of movie you forget as you watch. I say B-
20 May 2012 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"You don't understand, there's nothing you can do to save your father." When Sizwie (Storm) finds out that his father is in prison he wants to get him out. He finds a way by selling black market diamonds in America. What starts as a simple transaction turns dangerous when he is double crossed and becomes a party to contraband. He must now fight to save not only his father but also himself. While I was expecting much worse from this it was still a very forgettable movie. The fighting is exciting and very well done and the plot is a good idea. The problem is that when the fighting isn't happening it tends to drag a little and becomes forgettable. I again think this isn't a bad movie at all and is entertaining to a point but it seemed to be flat the whole way through and was really nothing original. There are a ton of martial arts movies out there and this is a little better then most but still very OK. Overall, another type of movie that is entertaining but you forget as you are watching it. I give it a B-.
