The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: Gary Daniels, Vannessa Vasquez, Michael Greco
A fearless D.E.A. agent waging a one man crusade against drug cartels on the U.S.-Mexico border, Cole (Gary Daniels, The Expendables) will stop at nothing to bring down the bad guys. When his ex-wife is kidnapped and his brother framed for it, Cole’s battle against the cartel becomes personal. With the help of local reporter, the headstrong and hot-blooded Gracie, he navigates the deadly Tijuana underworld run by brutal kingpin Raul Montenegro. Now the clock is ticking down to a final showdown where justice will be decided at gunpoint.
"Misfire" is a low budget action film, the kind we used to see all the time during the 80's. For a Indie film it has some good stuff going for it. For starters the production values look much better than the budget might suggest, the film looks and sounds great and the action scenes are well done. Director, R. Ellis Frazier does a fine job keeping the film moving at a nice pace even during it's slow points which is pretty much the first half hour of the movie.
Another plus is the cast, there were a few weak moments in the acting but for the most part the cast did a very good job. It was great to see Gary Daniels again on screen, I have always been a big fan of his and even though he does not get much of an opportunity to put his fighting skills on display he still does a good job during the action scenes that are in the film.
There is nothing special here or anything new story wise but I did find the film to be entertaining enough to recommend it. Being a Daniels fan certainly added to the over-all pleasure. So if you like a good old fashion action film, the kind Hollywood does not make anymore then I recommend checking this out. Do not expect anything great here and you should come out of it satisfied like I did.
