all the clothing is brand new

There is low budget, and then there is ultra low budget. In ultra low budget you can avoid awkward wardrobe/continuity issues by stopping at the nearest TARGET on the way to filming and get everyone brand new duds. At the 20 minute mark we go to a really boring flashback. The reason flashbacks exist is to break up the exciting action scenes so the audience can catch its breath. Not to connect one boring segment to another. I could go on, but you get the point.

We've seen worse, but not much worse

Avoid! There's nothing new here, just old faces you recognize but can't think of their name because you never knew it. B action stars with slower action than ever, worse accents than ever (Luis!!! Why???), and more nonsensical story than ever. The impression I got was that the script came from a night of these guys of grasping for random story ideas to get some work and make some money over (cheap) beer, and one of them said he knows a guy that can spit out a script for them in a couple weeks. And they did, and it's ridiculable. Hopefully this is their last one.

A Polished Turd

Just a couple minutes in, and I was already saying to myself, "Wow, this is a bad movie!" And 90 minutes later, nothing gave me reason to think otherwise.

This movie does have fantastic lighting, a well-composed dramatic soundtrack, flawless camera work, and excellent location for the shoot. And still, it is just polish on a turd. At the core, the story itself is just awful. Characters come and go with mere seconds of establishment so the audience cares for no one at all. I can't blame the actors outright but the performances were far from believable. Dialog was choppy and made little sense, even the editing left much to be desired in how the story flowed. Numerous continuity errors were just par for the course at that point. Even the fight scenes were reminiscent of old Jean Claude Van Dame movies with exaggerated, blocky movement that no one actually does. Alas, I watched it to the end to see if the fullness of this dreadful movie and it did not disappoint. I found very little redeeming value in this production. How it was funded and approved I'll never know. Don't waste your time.
