A sub-par effort by PM Entertainment
You might think that a B movie with Gary Busey, Jeff Fahey, Gary Daniels, and Pam Grier in its cast, as well as the fact that it was a co-production with PM Entertainment, which made classic B movies like RAGE and THE SWEEPER, that the end results would be pretty entertaining. Sadly, the movie ends up being somewhat underwhelming. A co-production with the hip hop film production unit No Limit, the mix between hip-hop elements and standard B movie going-ons is awkward. In fact, the hip hop elements just appear at the beginning, then in the middle, then at the end. Those into rap will be disappointed. As for those expecting typical B movie stuff will be disappointed as well. Some of the action isn't bad, though there's one action sequence that uses extensive footage from the Gene Hackman movie NARROW MARGIN. (And the end action sequence seems to use footage from AIR America.) And martial arts star Gary Daniels doesn't use his martial art skills once! Production values are generally good, but the script is frequently boring, wasting Grier and Fahey. The movie seems to have been designed to appeal to as big an audience as possible, but ends up pleasing no one.
