Storyline

Once Jack Walker was Germany's greatest action star, the hero of countless Germanic martial arts and action adventures, women wanted him and men wanted to be him, the world was his for the taking and he was the King of the action genre, filling cinemas with his adventures onscreen and the tabloids with his adventures off-screen.

But success can be a fickle mistress and over the years its turned its back on Jack, firstly his films began to stop playing in the cinema and his appearances in the papers was for the wrong reasons, he then became the King of Direct to Video, but the budgets have gotten smaller and his stardom has faded, not helped by his ego and eccentricities, and now he's not even the King of DTV, he's barely holding on to any title but "has been'.

Very low budget, but surprisingly fun. Good story and acting overcomes budget
3 May 2021 | by jbar19See all my reviews

This is a very low budget movie. And the plot is pretty implausible. BUT it rises above its meager resources because of a few of the actors.

Stefan Morawietz, plays Jack Walker is a washed up, world weary action movie star who is forced to accept work on a low budget, almost film student movie. Stefan really carries the whole movie. He is very likable and one cannot help but cheer him on.

The other stand out performance is by Denis Lyons who obviously enjoys playing this role as he chews up the scenery and gives a delicious and yet believable over the top performance as the villain. (He even plays a little evil music on a pipe organ!)

Be prepared to suspend disbelief because it's a silly little movie that starts out slowly. Also, the production values, frequently lack of background music and the low quality sound production are sometimes a little distracting.

But the crew of this film obvious made this movie as a labor of love and as a paean to classic Schwarzenegger and Stallone movies. Also, The fight scenes are pretty good considering the budget.

I am surprised at how much I got a kick out of this weird, little, silly, low budget movie. I enjoyed it and found myself cheering on the main hero, just as one does in big budget, better produced action movies.
