A real trash gem.
10 May 2020 | by a_lektorSee all my reviews

This movie seems like a movie a few teenagers with a large budget would shoot on video. There is a basic plot full of holes which Is actually not a plot but rather a gathering of all the Hollywood action movie clichés forged into a thing. The pace of the movie tries to show rapid and unstoppable but on some scenes its so ridiculous, like the one where the main hero drives a stolen porsche and escapes through some police cars. The direction is awful and almost absent in most part of the movie, actually it feels that wherever any scene needed some virtuosity to pull off, they decided to skip that tricky part and instead leave us with the mental intention of starting doing an action, as a begin of the actual action followed by a really bad montage instance, and suddenly the end of the action. The photography was also so bad that in many scenes it feels like you are watching a video movie. At some point where the hero gets to the factory in the last part of the movie every scene seems pointless and unneeded. I give it 5 out of 10 although I believe its real value is between 3 and 4, just for the cult factor and the fact it is a kind of a movie that we dont often see in the Greek filmography. Too bad that Greek cult film festival is no longer taking place, cause we have a trash gem here.
