Gee, what's not to like about this movie? The acting? It's serviceable enough considering this isn't a big budget film. Rutger Hauer's finest work is not demonstrated here, but still this is a Rutger Hauer film which means that it will be a bit different from the regular straight-to-video junk you see. The shootouts were laughable? Of course they were! Shootouts are always laughable in every movie in which a hero survives totally unscathed. The two notable exceptions are "Saving Private Ryan" and "Tombstone". There are a few others, but at least Hauer and Scio aren't sliding down glaciers on a car fender or something of that ilk.
Let's put things in proper perspective. When you have a movie that sounds good before it goes on paper, but doesn't look nearly as good after the ink has dried you find ways to make it not a complete waste of time. So you do the following:
1. Get Rutger Hauer
2. Buy lots of bullets (hero resistant, of course!)
3. Get a beautiful actress (and in this case
Yvonne Scio is a 10!)
4. Buy some more bullets
5. Show lots of skin (Nude female bodybuilders with
6. Have sex ...lots of it
7. Buy a few more bullets
8. Kill all the bad guys (but only after you reveal
that some good guys are bad and worse than the
bad guy you were originally after who turns out
to be easier to kill than expected)
9. Throw in convoluted ending (like my previous
10. Have more sex
For Pete's sake, people this is a cable channel movie. Enjoy it for the adrenaline and the visual pleasure. Don't get hung up on thinking about it. I'll watch this one again, if there isn't anything else on, or I need an Yvonne Scio fix.
