Owen Hughes’s review:
The first Sho Kosugi film I've seen actually and I don't think I'll be pursuing any more! He is a terrible actor but I guess he can fight pretty well as the film only really gets interesting when Van Damme actually adds some kind of physical, identifiable, human threat as the villain. Up until their big fight, it's a virtually "faceless" enemy so hard to route for Kosugi as the special agent trying to get his kids back and do some covert nonsense for the CIA.
It's a shame that I felt like I had to wait until pretty much near the end to get anything out of this film, but I did quite enjoy those last few scenes which salvages it somewhat.
