Everyone chain-smokes in this action film that doesn't seem to have much action in it. There's some judo, a guy gets whipped with a cat-o-nine tails, the hounds are released, and a villain wears a fez. When did the fez become the standard uniform for C-Squad henchmen? I'm not sure. There are a few explosions in 3 Seconds Before Explosion, but other than the one where severed hands and human chunks are thrown against a wall, they're nothing much to write home about.
