Absolutely amazing!
26 August 2006 | by udar55See all my reviews

Okay, so I watched this last night and I think I may have found my film of the year for 2006. Seriously, I can't think of anything else that will be more entertaining than this. Lots of people run around to try and secure some microfilm, which we are never told what it contains! It is literally shoot out after shoot out, chase after chase, huge explosion after huge explosion. The amazing thing is seeing Chris Mitchum do quite a bit of his own stunt work. Plus you have incredible support from guys like Bill "Super Foot" Wallace, Mike Abbott (looking like a cute Robert Z'Dar) and RAMBU himself Peter O'Brian as a wimp (!) named Tom Selick (say it out loud). This should come as no shock to anyone who has seen Azrial's earlier films like THE STABILIZER and FEROCIOUS FEMALE FREEDOM FIGHTERS.
