Entertaining low-budget action flick that brings me back to my youth!
3 January 2017 | by georgehuzakasSee all my reviews

As a child of the 1980's I have to say this little movie brings me back to the good old days of simple action!

For a time period piece set in 1984, this movie has a lot working for it. The action is believable, the special effects are more than decent and the acting is strong within a good majority of the cast. A few things that this movie reminds me of are Miami Vice, A-Team, and other late 70's, and early 1980's low budget action films. Although the film does not have the resources of a higher budget like "Die Hard" or "Commando", it certainly tries to fill some of those shoes and succeeds where other low-budget movies don't.

The cars, women and weapons are all over this movie making it awesome! Being a fan of all three that really attracted me to this!

The story is very straight forward and well presented with an interesting and unexpected twist at the end. I wish there was more time for some characters to develop, but I did not feel cheated at all. The intensity for survival in a tough situation really gives this movie a nice drive. This is an entertaining action thriller that stays within the realm of believable.

Also one of the highest points of this movie is the music! The soundtrack really provides a back- bone and just like a heart beat it doesn't let up. Many moments are enhanced by its music. If your a big fan of rock/synth like Tangerine Dream and Van Halen (Diamond Dave years) your going to want to get the soundtrack for this movie. I was very glad to see that this movie has a soundtrack release. There's a lot of soul and energy in the score.

Some scenes that really stood out for me, but will not give anything away are the shower scene, arms dealing scene, courtroom and the rooftop fight scene. Keep an eye out for the big bang!

I recommend this to any action fan, and lover of the 80's!
