What Happened to Showdown in Manila?

This is yet another movie I’ve been talking about for ages but has still not seen the light of day in the US/Canada.

With a cast that includes Mark Dacascos, Cynthia Rothrock, Don Wilson, Olivier Gruner, Alexander Nevsky, Matthias Hues, Casper Van Dien and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (directed by Mark Dacascos) you’d expect it to get quite the fanfare but sadly times have changed since the 90’s and if you’re not a mega budget blockbuster then most of these indie actioners will go unseen.

Showdown in Manila has already been released in Russia where Alexander Nevsky is making quite the name for himself but it’s been quiet on the release date front here for a while now.

Has anyone seen the movie? Is it any good?

Plot: Private detectives Nick (Alexander Nevsky) and Charlie (Casper Van Dien) live and work in Manila. A murder investigation leads them to the jungle camp of an international terrorist called The Wrath. Not trusting the police, Nick and Charlie assembly a team of daredevils to walk straight into the Wrath’s lair and fight an army of his goons.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it’s a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone.
