B class movie with a bit of naive screenplay
22 October 2017 | by jacekkajedenSee all my reviews

This movie is a typical B class movie made with A class budget. Screenplay is naive to say the least - some may call it daft. There are massive holes in logic behind portrayed heroes and action takes swings from bad to worse. As in all B class movies villains use all super-tech gear, yet are equipped with IQ hovering around lower 60s - enough to speak to people but not enough intelligence for their actions to make any sense. If you have two hours to waste or have guests that you do not like, treat them or yourself with this "movie".
