There are many twists and turns in this film and it seems to get rather boring and not really a great film to view.
The Movie Sells For One Cent On Amazon, does that tell you anything.
This movie isn't outright terrible, but it certainly is the very core definition of what a 'B-Movie' is. While the special effects are okay, the script is borderline terrible. I know Treach, a rapper, is supposed to be playing a convict turned elite government agent, and yet, he still talks and curses like a typical rapper! I find that hilarious! And so does his mentor, the bad guy of the movie, Brooks. Nia Peeples is a mix of brains and beauty, and yet, her character progressively gets dumber as the movie goes on. And Treach is playing himself more than anything. A " 'hood James Bond," really. It's like this whole script was written by the worst student in film school; the aspiring rapper turned screenwright.
To sum it up: Connors lost his eyesight via an explosion during a botched mission to save the First Lady from terrorists. He's recruited three years later by his old boss, Brooks, for one last mission, in which, he'll be able to get his eyesight back via some technology that involves a rabbit and cats' "eyes glowing in the dark because of a mirror behind their retinas" technique. Basically, light will refract back into his eyes with this procedure and he'll be able to see again, but only temporarally. Once Connors steals a thermos from a military base and hands it to his old boss Brooks, agents put out a hit on him and Dr. Amanda and they go on the run, to find out the truth, which is Connors' hero, mentor, and former boss, got fired by the government and has gone on an insane revenge plot to kill everyone with a secret bioweapon, which Connors' JUST gave to him! Now, it's up to him, Dr. Amanda, and Connors old Secret Service arch rival to stop Brooks' revenge plot before Connors loses his eyesight and everyone dies. And that's basically it. The end is kind of lame, but at least, less than predictable. Blu Mankuma as Brooks, although kind of a Ghetto old man, probably gives the best performance and his character is kind of Ghetto, but he's also very intelligent and meticulous, as well.
All in all, this was a funny 90 minutes, and aside the unprofessionalism of everyone's characters who are supposed 'professionals', this was entertaining enough. A good B-Movie.
2 1/2 Stars 1-15-13
love this movie shitts popping no gang shitt but forreal though.
A entertaining and hard-boiled Action-Thriller about a Blind Man who can see trough Injections in his Eyes i liked that Old Hippie in the Wheelchair
Average movie at best
The kind of film you forget all about shortly after watching it. but still this was a ok straight to dvd action movie.
Was this crap or what?
I wished I was blind sometimes during this shitty excuse for a movie..
Umm con una mejor producción esta hubiera podido ser una mejor peli
Not a very appealing action movie, bland cast, not particularly well acted. There are some good action sequences, but not enough to pull the film together. Lot's of cliche's. It lacks character development and suspense, a rather fatal combination for an action movie. Totally ordinary.
the script is good, but the music sucs !
