      William D One of the worst movies I have ever seen and has ever been made. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Dolph Lundgren is not a good actor but he cares and has charisma. His straight to DVD career is about on par with Steven Seagal's theatrical career. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member What the Hell? This was straight to video right? Oh yeah. Started off as a hostage situation and then suddenly he's fooling around with some teacher in a classroom...so yeah. I was a bit disappointed when it came to transition. Then theres this weird group of "terrorists", one chick with bright pink hair and some weird chubby, non-threatening guy who seems to be the ring leader of all this. They try to kill Dolf....but are unsuccessful. However, they are successful at delivering cheesy lines during equally cheesy action scenes. For shame Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Dolph to stereotypical gangsta selling drugs to one of his students: "No, I teach phys ed and History. Here's the phys ed... (punches guy in stomach and takes his gun away)... And you're history." writing so terrible that it's funny must be intentional. that's all i can figure at this point. I mean, really. who writes that down and thinks... "ohhh this is good!" Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
