About on par with C-Grade made for TV shows
I felt a lot of heart went into making this movie, but it just doesn't make the grade.
Cheesy one liners, though delivered well and fit the spirit of the movie well, still end up being cheesy one-liners.
Special effects were worse than what you would see in an episode of a Sci-Fi Channel original or TV episode like Stargate.
The only thing that got this movie beyond TV was the mid level, mostly washed up actors, who have been popular in the past, or were in good movies at one point in their careers.
Regarding Danny Trejo at the top of the Bill, he shows up for literally less than 20 seconds, and wasn't even part of the movie from what I could tell.
Names like Shark,Ranger,War,Riot,and Backfire make me think they did everything they could do put the movie at C or worse. It's like they didn't even make a pretension of trying to be better than that. Almost like they all got together and said "let's make a really good D-movie, and let's work really hard to make it that way!"
Anyways, to sum it up...The heart and hard work was there, and the acting mostly decent, but I feel with the cast and the story line it could of been better...Maybe even end up something of a cult flick, but it doesn't quite get there.
