I think it was during this time that movies done on a low budget were starting to go straight to home video instead of showing them in theatres since they seem to be made very quickly. For the action sequences are fake and sometimes poorly executed, they would contain no logic with mediocre acting and this one is no exception. Now, it was also during at that time I was craving for great action movies, and now that I saw it, I can see now that I actually made the right choice.
