Goofs

In the scene in the alley when Luke avoids the black pickup truck, he drops into the pickup bed and rolls off the back, which is open. Yet, when you see the truck pull out of the alley at the other end, there is back gate on the pickup bed, which would have prevented him rolling out. See more »

Entertaining cable action with an actual plot
18 November 1999 | by RemoR380See all my reviews

I turned to this movie late at night mainly to see Mark Dacascos who is nice to look at, and not a bad actor either! I tend to fall asleep if a movie doesn't keep me interested. Well, I felt that, for a cable action movie (on Action Max) it was entertaining and had an actual plot that made sense. In a series of flashbacks, we see the events that shaped Dacascos's character. It's got plenty of guns, a few explosions, a government conspiracy, bad guys, good guys, a possible good gal, and an ironic ending that is both unexpected and appropriate. This is a flick that both guys and gals can watch - lots of action but not any gore. I wish Dacascos luck in catching a mainstream movie and riding it to the big screen. He deserves it!
