      Audience Member Interesting premise; cheap production. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Basic shoot'em-up, blow'em-up combat film with interesting characters and non-stop action. Not bad for a motion picture nobody's ever seen with actors nobody's ever heard of. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
