Put this DVD back...
8 December 2006 | by BWSee all my reviews

...and step away from the rack. And keep your hands above your head! If you don't you might make the same mistake that I did. I picked the DVD up (the cover 'hooked' me for the obvious juvenile reasons) and noted that, hey, Bas Rutten is in the cast. Bas is da man.

Well, Bas is in an opening action scene and then is cuffed and hauled away, not to be seen again except in brief backlashes... I mean back flashes.

But there are two hot chicks, which never hurts. Unfortunately there's everything else. How about the story? Secret agent Danielle Burgio is doing R&R in Trinidad. Someone leaks her location and a few minutes later Lauren Kim and Kevin Levrone show up. Fists, feet, and bullets fly, Danielle escapes and history repeats itself again, again, and again. We get foot, car, and boat chases but we don't care as they all suck.

And just who is leaking her location? Only a ground sloth will take more than 30 seconds to figure it out.

So how are the fight sequences? They're like the foot, boat, and car chases... bad, very bad.

I don't mind dumpster diving for 'great' bad B films. But this offering is just bad. I gave it three stars because I'll give any film one star and I awarded one star each for the two good-looking females.

If you are in the mood for a great trashy film, try and find a copy of Massacre in Dinosaur Valley, starring Michael Sopkiw and the incredible hotty Suzane Carvalho, a much better time waster.
