| A blood and guts action film.
Robert Pentz, Brock, was being groomed to be the next action hero. He and "The Arnold" looked so similar that he had worked as his stand-in many times. Robert owned a Golds Gym and he and Arnold were friends. The movie was made for Robert and was constantly predictable. Brock is approached to re-enter his old job as a DEA agent after he learns that his wife and child had been killed by Mexican drug lords. He burns with vengeance in a touching scene of his wife played by Tammy Coates and his little girl,Emily, cry out to him in a vision. When he goes to an electronics store to equip himself with arms and various electronic equipment he draws compassion, support, and flirtation of an employee, played alluringly by Faye Johnson, the female lead. However, her beauty and wiles cannot deter him from his mission. She stocks him with a slew of gadgets that he uses to wage a one-man war against these drug lords. There are some Commando, Rambo, moments and the "McGyver" techniques are not boring but very gory and violent. The stunts directed by the stunt master himself, Ronald Ross, were outstanding. Ronald Ross,Director, brought together some audio-visual exciting scenes but editing apparently did a butchering job as scene to scene did not flow with enough continuity. I understand it did well in military towns but it is reported that there was not enough advertising monies for the American market, and had more success in oversees video markets.
