The film opens with boxer David Goran (Gary Daniels) ruuning through the streets being chased by the Mexican police. He ominously proclaims it is "just as bad as it looks." He tells us "it's a long story" and we know no matter what, it will be less than 90 minutes, in fact it only takes us 18 minutes to get back to that point. David just won a fight and stiffs the bell-hop. It seems he has been as honest as a Jai-Alai player taking dives and creating odds. He has been trying to raise money to pay off a blackmailer. His girlfriend (Sissi Fleitas) and sometimes former prostitute killed a guy and he is making money to pay off her blackmailing ex-boyfriend. Yes, David has a capital "L" painted on his forehead. The film is overt in that it allows you to clearly see nobody is what they pretend to be. David gets forced into a fight to the death club in order to save his girlfriend...which I would have cut loose long ago. The film is low budget. The fight sequences are short and realistic, meaning they are not overly exciting and entertaining. Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity.
