Did You Know?


Despite being featured heavily in the film's marketing, the conflict between Mike Tyson and Steven Seagal is just a small subplot that consists of just one short fight at the beginning of the movie (and during most of it Seagal is clearly replaced by his stuntman), and that is the only scene that the 2 of them share.

During the fight scene between Mike Tyson and Steven Seagal, in various shots Seagal is replaced by another man who is visibly younger and slimmer than Seagal. See more »

Terrible script, bad acting, disgusting male hairdo in Korean style
23 February 2018 | by CyniLogicalSee all my reviews

Well, the Chinese movie investment did it again, they overlooked a very bad screenplay, casting lot of deadbeat no-talent at all low level actors to play the bad people, watching these non-actors poor performances, I suddenly found Steven Segal and Mike Tyson were actually a pair of pretty good actors in this laughable film. Both of the two leading Chinese actors were also lousy actors with awkward and pretentious performances, the male actor also had a funny Korean style hairdo, that was covered up his forehead with hairs combed down below his eyebrows, this sissy hairstyle is the typical disgusting hairstyle widely used by those sissy looking Korean young actors or singers and blindly copycatted by the Chinese young entertainers. I just felt very uncomfortable to watch a Chinese high tech guy would have a funny Korean hairstyle.

Anyway, this is a very shallow movie, blindly invested by those Chinese deep pockets. They thought making the African locality and background setting was a cool and exotic choice that would sell to the Chinese moviegoers easily. But with such a poor screenplay and poor cast, all I could concentrate is the African scenes, the streets, the African people, the desert, the camels, the palm trees and the SUVs....
