5.0 out of 5 stars Black Friday is a great movie! OWN IT NOW!
Black Friday is an awesome actioner! I just totally dig the cool music and the rad camera angles! The color content was toned perfectly and the fight scenes were flawless! Martial Arts and pure action fans, Own Black Friday Now!

2.0 out of 5 stars A movie for Gary Daniels`s fans!
This is a action thriller about a man`s family that is held hostage by masked terrorists and plans to get revenge! This is a low budget movie that has it`s ups and downs but it is entertaining if you can get by the bad music that is stuck on one beat,horrible dialogue,bad effects,bad color,way off camra work,and a conversation that goes nowhere for about fifteen minutes...

2.0 out of 5 stars A movie for Gary Daniels`s fans!, February 17, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Black Friday (DVD)
This is a action thriller about a man`s family that is held hostage by masked terrorists and plans to get revenge! This is a low budget movie that has it`s ups and downs but it is entertaining if you can get by the bad music that is stuck on one beat,horrible dialogue,bad effects,bad color,way off camra work,and a conversation that goes nowhere for about fifteen minutes. We looked at the box and saw Gary Daniels was holding a katana sword and We found out that he didn`t even have a sword at all in the movie so don`t plan on seeing Gary use a sword on anybody. Now for the good stuff about Black Friday. It has a few fight scenes that last a long time and there is
some good shooting scenes aswell. These scenes however are tilted and discolored by the camra so it`ll seem different. Black Friday is a movie that doesn`t have the greatest production and fight/shooting sequences so its not no Steven Seagal movie but if you are a fan of Gary Daniels this is a must see and a must buy or even if you are a movie lover that loves martial arts and shooting this is something to check out!

3.0 out of 5 stars WHERE'S THE SWORD?, February 19, 2004
By 
This review is from: Black Friday (DVD)
Shame on movie distributors that put your action hero on the front and misrepresent the movie! Gary Daniels never even touches a sword in this one! Shame, shame!
Aside from that, here's some thoughts about BLACK FRIDAY:
*Director Darren Doane has a nifty camera eye, with his use of pastel abstract colors and some unusual filming of the film's two long fight scenes.
*Why does Dean Campbell give up his family to help out in this caper?
*Gary Daniels has a commanding stage presence, able to blend his fierce martial arts persona and that of your average Joe. He is to be commended for trying to be an "actor" instead of a "martial arts" star, but he should remember---he is still a martial arts star and he should put a little more action in his movies. The long fifteen minute sequence between him and his friend, Matt, is filmed at such a strange angle it diminishes the performances.
*This is not a great movie, but enjoyable in a cinematic way.

1.0 out of 5 stars a waste, June 20, 2012

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Black Friday (DVD)
Having bought it for the low price, and having seen the star in major roles I expected more then I received. According to the build up of action and the samurai sword swinging on the cover it didn't show up. What did show up was bad to terrible acting, and yes, even from the star. It will be some time before I buy or even rent another of his shot to video movies. I don't recommend this film at all, not at any price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bought this at Blockbuster for $6.99, November 6, 2004
By 
Freth (Delaware, OH United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Black Friday (DVD)
I saw this on the Blockbuster sale table of previewed videos and though, "hmmm... sword flick". I read the back and it sounded interesting so I bought it. As others have said, Gary doesn't even use a sword in this movie. I kept waiting for him to whip one out, but he never did. The movie itself is pretty good for low budget. The music is a mixed bag. Some of it is good, but for the most part it's annoying. I do like the fact they used an alternative band instead of the typical rap music crap. The fight scenes are realistic in that there are no fancy super power moves, just good ole fashioned martial arts against martial arts. And that's a good thing. The gushing sounds you hear when people get stuck in the heart with a knife could've been left out. Some scenes just seemed like they were filmed in the same location, or locations that didn't require anything but a camera and the side of a building. I could've sworn Gary's law office and the CCO office looked like exactly the same place from the inside. You have to expect that kinda thing with low budget films. The rental of the huge house was probably most of the budget. That being said, it was mediocre as an action movie and there were times when the acting seemed strained. It's decent if you like low budget action movies, but it's subpar except for the three fight scenes in the movie.
