Really bad "Die Hard" clone
14 August 2011 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

"Terminal Rush" was not the first "Die Hard" rip-off that Don "The Dragon" Wilson appeared in. Four years earlier, he starred in the Roger Corman-produced "Bloodfist VI: Ground Zero". As bad as that movie was, it looks like professional filmmaking compared to "Terminal Rush", especially since this movie was directed by Damian Lee, one of Canada's worst directors. This movie is bad in every way you can think of - the cinematography looks bland and washed out, the sound is poorly recorded, the camera-work is clumsy, the locations look bland, the fight scenes look like they were choreographed in five minutes, the script has a number of plot holes, and Wilson doesn't look or act very enthusiastic. The biggest sin the movie makes is being so incredibly dull. It's poor efforts like this which explain why Wilson stopped appearing in movies.
