You probably haven't heard of any of the actors. I'm guessing that the Director didn't have a massive budget to work with and I highly doubt that you've ever heard of him either. Normally I avoid "B" movies like this but my son thought it sounded good so I took a leap of faith and rented it for him. What a surprise! I'm happy to say that I didn't waste my money in renting this film. It was very enjoyable, the fight scenes were well done and realistic and the acting was very good! Now I'm not saying that it's going to win an Oscar but it certainly isn't going to make you wish you had done ANYTHING other than spend your time watching it. It's an enjoyable film and well worth the price.
