    Looked pretty crappy to me. May watch it just for the cast.

    Sadly that is usually a warning sign.
    Seen too many modern low budget films, filled with 80:s horror actors in the cast, that are just bottom of the barrel trash.
    I like Hatchet, but that is basically the only good stuff that Kane Hodder has been in, since...forever.
    Dee Wallace looked like she was bored to death :D

    Sorry for being a negative old fart here ;)

    Gotta say, I didn't think it looked great, but I'm ready to give it a chance.

    I gotta agree myself. Not knocking the effort but just observing the first trailer it looks sort of "cheap"

    Will definitely give it a watch on the account of Kane Hodder and Gunnar.

    Didn't know Camille Keaton was still making films.

    Neither did I. Not familiar with her name so I didn't pick up on who that was.

    Saw this today at a local theater, early show at 12:45. Only three people there: myself, my wife, and some guy who went by himself. Can't speak for the other guy, but my wife and I thought it was awful. Really wanted to like it, but there is so very little to recommend here. The cast should be the selling point. The two younger leads (both playing agents) were wooden at best. Annoying characters with lousy dialogue in many ludicrous scenes. The genre all-stars outside of Kane Hodder and Dee Wallace are given so very little to do and mostly amount to cameos.

    I realize this film was a long time in the making, but honestly it feels like a cheap and sloppy rush job. I have no idea how much of Gunnar Hansen's story remained intact since his passing in 2015. I see that the director has a co-writer credit. Whatever happened, the end result is a fucking mess of a film. Underused characters, many phoned-in performances, and a convoluted story that tries to do too much and accomplishes so very little.
