One time watch for action fans but nothing impactful or new. The poster looks like a Spartacus episode.
4 February 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

As u can c from the IMDb's plot summary that it is about a cop (Bruce Khan) who puts himself into an island prison to revenge the killings of his family. The island is loaded with so called baddies but when u notice the group which shelters the injured cop, none of em looks like dreaded criminals. In fact there is a warrior woman with a girl child, a silly doc, a retard, few more families n lots of extras. There is another group with a lousy villain, one well built fighter, a sword yielding hunchback n lots of fillers/extras. Ther is tons of hand to hand combat (but none of it memorable), machete fighting, bow n arrow fights but nothing as impactful n memorable like the ones from Iko Uwais' or Donnie Yen's films. Both the groups r wearing identical clothes n during the mass fightings n other action scenes it becomes hard to make out what's going on. (Although none of the shaky cam stuff).

Ther r much better ones with similar theme like Battle Royale, The Condemned, Hunger Games, Cyborg, etc. The lead actor did some nice action choreography but again nothing impactful. I am a lil generous with a 7 cos of the action choreography n the sincere effort.
