A really enjoyable watch compared to some of the really badly narrated and choreographed films that have been released this past 12 months, some of which I couldn't even bring myself to waste the time writing about, in this film there are some great fight scenes for the martial arts fans and a Solid storyline filled with unfolding plots for Sci-fi lovers.
I won't explain how the movie progresses or the ending as that would spoil all the fun, so go have a watch and come back and let me know what you think.
If you enjoyed the read and like Sci-fi and Martial Arts movies this is a good one for entertainment, again thanks for dropping by, I would appreciate it if you would power beam that up-vote an throw an electric pulse blast at the re-blog as it would help me reach more readers and potential followers, Have a nice day....
