What a terrible B moive!
28 December 2018 | by LogicIsEverythingSee all my reviews

Guys such as Casper Van Dien and Lochlyn Munro have both become certified bad B movie brand names. Munro has been showing his face in most Steven Seagal's bad movies, Van Dien once could be a break-through star but later failed after several unsuccessful movies, and now also became a throw-back B movie actor since only movies with limited budgets and terrible screenplays would throw bones to him.

This film is so bad, signed up several non-talent females to play some entry-level MMA female fighters with a terribly scripted, poorly directed B-movie. The storyline is so weak and cracked apart all over the place, some scenes were almost clueless. Pointless fights with unnecessary cruelty for the female actors to perform, breaking elbow or even thighs or knees. But there's almost no storyline at all. What a joke, how dare you guys call this as a watchable movie?!
