I understand there's a particular crowd that enjoys Seagal's B-action movies, but I'm not part of it. Especially since, in this case, the movie is neither as horrendously awful as bad-movie-lovers might hope, nor is it semi-decent enough to please even the most accepting of viewers. It's merely a dull bore, worthy of only a few chuckles and some turns of the wrist to check the time. Expectedly, the acting, directing, editing, music, and every other aspect of the production fit between a range of "dreadful" and "amateurish" (even the dialogue seems out of sync half the time). But hey, this is a straight-to-DVD movie whose target audience obviously doesn't care about that stuff, so I'll give it some slack.
Still, no matter how much slack I give the production, there's no getting around how utterly lacking in logic some of its sequences are. In one particular case, there's a super-strong, super-fast, and super-hot female antagonist who manages to take out three military dudes without breaking a sweat. The explanation for this chick's seemingly super-human abilities are that she's ingested a "special" drug. Ok, fine, sure, whatever - I'll buy that. But what about the fact that she can literally burst her arms through walls, break off metal clamps, and apparently teleport as well? If that weren't enough, there's a point where her shadow looms behind a window and she makes this weird insect noise while sniffing splattered blood. ...uh... I don't think I'm alone when I ask, "What the f*ck?!"
Ironically, it was the moments like the ones above that I enjoyed the most. Had they managed to top off the whole thing with some ridiculous twist concerning the bad guys being alien-vampire creatures (or something of that nature), this might've become my new favorite movie. But it doesn't, and in turn, there's not nearly enough of the "so-bad-it's-good" elements to make it worthy of even a glance at the cover (let alone a rental).
