Around 51:00 Phil and Mitch are talking on their cell phones in their cars. Mitch tells Phil he is going to talk to Peterson (wheel chair guy). Phil tells Mitch not to go, but he hangs up. Both head to Peterson's house. Mitch gets there first finds Peterson dead. Phil shows up shortly after Mitch. Peterson had been dead several hours or maybe days. Phil looks at Mitch accusing him of the killing and tells him he will give Mitch one hour before he has to report the homicide. Neither said "Hey feel the body.. its cold, if I had just killed him he would still be warm". These are homicide detectives? See more »

Wow wow wow wow wow!!!!!!
26 May 2016 | by darren-symingtonSee all my reviews

The list of actors should be a warning... I think I figured out why this film was made... Steven Sehgal's film Sniper:Special Ops was released around the same time and a competing studio needed to throw something out in record time with little to no budget.

I know some of you may be thinking that this statement above might be overly harsh but, seriously, there is no way I could ever be overly harsh. There were redeeming factors: 1.) I enjoy train-wrecks and this is definitely one of them. 2.) Outside of the three main actors the studio skillfully avoided finding anyone with talent - Kudos to them. 3.) They spent 50% of their budget on special effects - if their budget was $10.

It wouldn't have been rated a 1/10 but was slightly let down by poor cinematography, terrible acting, ridiculous dialogue, poor locations, horrible sets, poor sound engineering, terrible special effects, shonky score and really, really awful ending.

Despite all of this - you really should watch this! Why? Same reason people watch new Steven Sehgal and Nicholas Cage movies - I don't know why else.
