very good worth watching action movie
10 January 2016 | by nikola17See all my reviews

very good worth watching action movie, but it needs more action too movie well it can't because it is very low budget film specially i am fan of Dolph Lundgren is bad guy just like old times and Cung Le witch Cung Le is lead role just like dragon eyes. the story is very well written just like skin trade but skin trade is has a lot more action then this movie. story follows:(Cung Le)John Nguyen is a Veteran Soldier coming back home from overseas John has a suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder soon he investigates screaming woman Tanya(Briana Evigan)getting buy thugs john get's into fight with them killed all thugs Tanya say's that we are going to be doomed with Hollis Hands. (Dolph Lundgren) Hollis lord pimp gangster Visited Carl(Eddie Rouse)motel manger has connection with Hollis talking about john to know who he is. Hollis asks lieutenant Vin (Gianni Capaldi)to murder John's family at night Vin and he's couple men went to john family house killed them in a burning van later John found out his family has been killed in burning van found someone who killed his family witch was request buy Hollis Movie is all is cung Le is lead role the movie is trying to be like Skin Trade, Punisher, John Wick, Hard to Kill type of thing because it's a Revenge movie witch has a lot of action witch didn't have big budget had low budget shooting, fighting, little explosion's i love scene with cung Le With only four fight scenes and one shootout, the movie could definitely use more action, though Cung Le's kicks are worth waiting for. The choreography manages to appear completely efficient without shirking flashiness, so it's very satisfying when Le takes on groups of bad guys. His finale with Lundgren is much shorter than it should be that's it very fast placed. Dolph Lundgren didn't do much in his character his role is noting really

he is most of movie but main is Cung Le Dolph Appears most of scenes he is there just for paycheck i know he is not that into movie as much he looks bored expect for Skin Trade was very fun movie then this movie is noting wrong normal low budget action movie expect Dolph he didn't kick ass until end of movie little fights that's all i could write about Dolph character.

(Vinnie Jones) Bennett was friend to Vin witch has noting got to do with John Family all he knows who Hollis is and who killed his family he didn't do anything he is there for paycheck he is in it half way that's it shame all actors in movie sadly didn't get too do much expect for Cung Le witch i like but i wanted Dolph to do something bad luck he didn't much to do Anything In Movie that is bad luck for fans like me but Cung Le is good actor not best not everyone is a fan but i am fan of him in MMA. Showdown towards at end of movie witch was OK not very big and long fight with Cung and Dolph, Dolph is getting back Johnny Mnemonic with long hair looks like biker gang but he is powerful gang mob leader Lundgren to look pretty fluid and powerful, using his height, reach, and power karate to take the fight to Le, cool but believably. Dolph Lundgren is doing good movies but he is not really doing any better movies skin trade was a a lot better but another's are OK but he needs to be in a lot better roles,Main Character, better movies for lundgren expect Skin Trad was a great movie. Cung Le needs more of main role movies with better action,horror movies needs better studios better scripts more action scenes 7.10 not bad movie to watch for lundgren fans if you like watching him as bad guy like Universal soldier 1,3,4, Rocky IV, Stash House, Johnny Mnemonic, The Package but mostly he is good guy in rest of his movies. this one i won't highly recommend for everyone only cung Le fans it's more of cung Le movie then a lundgren film both cast cung Le is in it more then lundgren has been in it.
