Violent and Exotic
15 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

Watchable for the Exotic Location Filming and some Violent Action Pieces, this STV Movie is a bit Different, owing to its Setting. Mickey Rourke was Unadvisedly and for no Good Reason given a thick French Accent. Another slight Setback is the Totally Uncharismatic Lead Actor that is all Buff and not much Else.

The Actor Playing the Local Cop comes off much Better. The Story is Forever Confusing and Keeping Things in some kind of Make Sense Order is a bit Difficult. But Action Fans are Forgiving in this Type of Thing and may find it a Satisfying Shoot Em Up.

The Look of the Movie is Great, so for some Foreign Land Eye Candy with Fantastic Costumes, and some Truly Violent Action this is Worth a Watch.
