movie was shot in in early 2016. I spoke to Don about it a couple of
years ago, he was unsure, I tried to find out about it as well.

had this to say on his Facebook Page: “I met Billy Zane in Sean
Penn's house in Malibu many years ago. Later, he would work in a
Roger Corman film at the Production Studio in Venice, California. I
stopped by his trailer and said, hello. Again, "many years
later", we would work together in this fun 'All Girl Super Hero
Movie", "V Force"! I was asked to appear in just a
couple of scenes as a "cameo". He was perfect as "the
mad scientist" and he had his "monsters" kill me at
the end of my scene. Well, I can't complain because every time I work
with friends in my films, they end up dying too! “
Frank is an amazing talent and has worked on a variety of shows including the A-Team and Walker Texas Ranger.
V-Force is a sci-fi action film with robots, supreme fighters,
wraiths, fighting a special force of ladies. The movie was shot in
Portland, Oregon. I recommended JuJu Chan to be on the project and
she was cast along many stars such as Billy Zane, Keith David, and
Bruce Dern. Curious to learn more!

valued Dan's Movie Report and Action-Flix.com readers, across my desk
today comes a short action film called Redemption. The 11 Minute
blast really levels up the quality of what a short action film can
be. With the film being shot in the same final fight location as
Triple Threat, Redemption is virtually forced to have a higher
standard. For me as a viewer, I hat to watch on my biggest TV, and I
was transported into a climactic scene or opening scene of an action
movie.Actor's Ron Smoorenburg and actor Neonat Wiangyangkung shine in action, with speed and timing worthy of a theater movie.
Renney serves as director, fight choreographer, and editor. Mr
Renney really brought his A game and here is hope that this short
film is just a taste of what is to come. The look and feel of the
movie is bigger than your average short film. The final fight
location is large enough to show scope but intimate enough to allow
for you guessed it, amazing camera work! Niccolò De La Fere serves
as cinematographer getting the angles just right, I noticed that
stunt action specialist Tanja Keller serves as 1st AD and
this is good as she can bounce ideas off and have a perspective.
importantly, Redemption represents the results of a collaborative
effort, a team of skilled people looking to better their film making
craft and strengthen their action prowess. Redemption is expertly shot
and the music and sound boom with the undulating power of a AR-15.
The musical score credit goes to composer Roman Molino Dunn from
Mirrortone. Class film and so far, my top short film of the year,
yeah it is that good and rates 9.5 out of 10.
entire film is on YouTube along with a full cast and crew list @
Mayday is not only being developed, but is well on it's way to begin
pre-production soon. Cerchi has made me aware that lead actor Michael
Paré will return in the same capacity. In addition, look for Bai
Ling and Tara Reid to be involved. As fans we can be involved
directly! I am normally very apprehensive of Indigogo campaigns as
there is no threshold and no assurance the project will be made. This
is exactly the opposite, the first film sold well Cerchi told me. Cerchi gets films made
and keeps his word! Credit to Horror-Flix.com as well for their
inclusion of actor Robert Lasardo please check out their article as

valued Dan's Movie Report and Action-Flix.com readers I decided to
purchase the Amazon release of Haphazard. One of the beautiful things
of buying a movie, is the indie people are supported directly and
secondly the opinions are more realistic, thus no agenda. I have
interviewed several people in this film prior Ron Smoorenburg. Selina
Lo, Byron Gibson and Dean Alexandrou. My relationship with them will
not have a bearing on my review, yet I have some strong opinions,
positive and negative.
begins with a fight, then a narration by Selina Lo, discussing the
story about how she met a man name the Pilgrim. There is a slick
recon satellite was shot down or crashed, but we never see it shot
down just hear about it but we are shown a room where it is being
monitored. Then the film cuts to a fire dance in which the signal is
active for the secret hard drive contained. Nrox 42 satellite
contents needs to be recovered. The next 80 minutes are comprised of
several parties going for the hard drive, Dean Alexandrou creates a
rather intricate yet simple plot at the same time. Hard to explain,
but I got more out of this film upon second viewing.
genre is action, yet the humor interspersed makes the film seem more
light hearted. Smoorenburg's character Ronnie, just is non stop
flirtatious and inappropriate comments, kind of funny yet Selina Lo's
Siren gets the best lines. “If this was a real fight I would have
taken a fork and shoved it through your eye socket” The best line
is when a guy who hit her motorcycle and knocked her off and asked
her want me to call an ambulance, and she calmly says “You're gonna
need one!”Whoa, Selina calm the hell down, I told her in a direct
message you looked adorable in the movie and she said “I was going
for fierce, but I will take adorable hah!” Selina has a pretty
amazing double sword action fight later in the film. Watch for a 2021
interview after Boss Level comes out.
for Byron Gibson and Damon Whitaker in supporting roles they are both
excellent of course, very natural actors. The acting overal is good
with the main characters, but some of the side characters not so
movie flow is a minor issue there is downtime and story development
then a bunch of fights at the end. The final fights are extensive and
I would have liked to see a cut away to some sort of plot
development, yet the stories were explored earlier in the film.
and stunt specialist Tanja Keller has a great fight with Dean on a
boat and in short, I loved the fight, did not enjoy the camera work,
angles and distance, I wanted to see some close ups not drone nor
shaky type of camera. I realize the boat itself is the problem, but
the fight lacked some of the impact.
is a Russian agent who dresses in silly costume, and her acting is
really bad and forced, I mean if that was the character, I was just
annoyed by it. I feel that she kind of was not needed or could have
been a voice on the phone.
this is an indie film, the sound track itself is good but in
headphones, the recording is hollow and tinny and I have tried
several brands of headphones that I own in ear and over the ear and
was like, how come the thin sound.
The original music composed
for the film is great on Hollow Point and fits each part. Composer Nicholas Rivera takes his time going over each scene to set the mood and tone. The fight sequences have a undulating, tense tone, while the quieter parts seem to blend with serenity allowing the viewer to breathe between action. Nicholas is amazing and deserves to be considered among the greats in film composing, as he enjoys his work and feels the passion of the stories he scores.
video editing and transitions are pretty good and keeps the movie a
tight 90 minutes, some scenes are really well lit and there is a
massive fight in a private club where it was so dark the action was
hard to see. I wanted to see it.
briefcase so many people want it, yet the urgency of the film is
chilled pace except when Dean is doing some free running chasing,
then it picks up to frantic. Actually Dean did a film called Dohard
that has a similar type of chase and Selina using double swords.
Lo is the Haphazard highlight with Dean's energetic fighting skill
close behind. Dean is an upcoming film maker and the quality is
improving wish each production, I also reviewed Time Rush as well.
The amazing Daniel Zirilli is listed as one of the producers in
Haphazad, always collaborating he is, wanting to build people up.
what more can be said about the stunts, Charlie
Ruedpokanon leads a masterful group of stunt performers and the
result is epic action. The action is tense, artful and copious!
would say for $1.99 for a rental and $7.99 for purchase, Haphazard,
even with the flaws is worthy of a buy and rates a 7 out of 10,
initially I was going to do 6 out of 10 but a second watching and
Selina Lo leaving people broken all the while looking great was
refreshingly entertaining! I hope there is a DVD eventually, I still
enjoy physical copies.
