They ought to rate this movie P.U.
As is common in so many straight-to-video efforts, this offers a tired, formulaic script featuring some minor, washed-up actors in a project that's obviously hampered by a low budget. Even if you're simply looking for a 90-minute "time-killer," this will not suffice.
Particularly bad is the big torture scene in which John Schneider, who's fallen into the hands of the ruthless, sadistic bad guys, is tied to a chair so he can be subjected to electroshocks. The bad guys pull open his shirt, but since he's wearing an undershirt, this has little effect. Then they poke him a couple of times in the neck with the electrical wires. Then they give up, figuring that Schneider can't be forced to talk! What torture school did these guys go to? The Jack and Jill Academy of the Big Ouch?
For a much better scene of John Schneider being tortured with electricity, check out "Cocaine Wars." At least the bad guys in that movie have enough sense to strip him to the waist.
