Watching this, you'd consider giving up
15 June 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

If you can watch the movie and try to be positive about it and see the fun of it (even and especially the unintentional fun of it, like in the bad acting), you might enjoy it. If this still doesn't work for you, take the title and try not to surrender before the end credits roll. You might like the music ... or the action ... or the women.

But all in all, as you can see by the rating, you will likely not like the movie. I only got interested into the movie, because I heard they released the movie in a cut version in Germany. I can't tell you exactly what they cut out, but it wasn't the "softcore action" of the movie. It must have been a bit of the fighting, that goes on.

And to be honest, if you like/love the 80s style US Martial Arts movies, you might more than enjoy this. And if it were shot in the 80s, van Damme would've been the first one to call for this! No offense to the writer/director/producer AND main actor of this, but he can would have been the better choice ... especially because he can act quite a bit more, than the guy on hand here.

What kinda bugs me though, is that the guys, that seem to be able to hold their own (acting wise), get shoved to minor roles. Especially the Georges St. Peter guy and the Rampage guy (I think that's what he's called). If they would've been longer in the movie, it would have helped immensely!
