If you're in the mood for brutality...
6 May 2018 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

It seems that director Julius R. Nasso picked up a few things from his days producing Steven Seagal movies, because in his directorial debut - this particular movie - the level of brutality is extraordinarily high. If you want to see scene after scene of people punched, kicked, shot, and stabbed, then you will really like this movie. The violence may not be directed with a lot of style or careful choreography, but you'll definitely feel every blow and wound. And thanks to a slightly higher than usual budget for a direct to video movie, Nasso does manage to make the movie look fairly sick and expensive. If you care about other things such as good writing, however, you'll probably be disappointed. The main plot unfolds pretty slowly, and the various plot turns you'll probably be able to guess long before they happen. And the characters are nothing memorable; the title character, for one thing, comes across as a slightly dim-witted thug that you won't particularly care about. But for some people, the cinematic sight of people over and over getting brutalized will help them let off some steam and be entertaining for 90 or so minutes. You know who you are, so if you're one of those particular people, press play and enjoy.
