It starts off with a bashful love story inconspicuously placed square in the middle of a secret government excavation. A brave team of volunteer soldiers risk their lives to explore a newly discovered underground cave. After overcoming several life-threatening encounters, survivors find their way back. Although the movie was full of action from start to finish, it definitely picked up shortly after this. Our hero, played by Mark Chao, never let go of the past and all he lost in that fateful time. Nor did the past let go of him. It came back emotionlessly violent. This is a great movie to get lost in. It has a “never-ending story” feel that could be built upon more and more.

There is magic and sorcery, good guys with a heart of gold and cool guys who never give up. It’s is a formula for success.
