(5/10stars)Also finding some routine in this.
28 September 2010 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Adventure movie written and directed by Charles B Griffith.I'am not a true fan of this film,cause I feel like the good potential lost mostly because the characters were very used,and despite the better second half of the film,I never felt this will get that big ending like lot of similar movies of the genre,and lot of similar movies of the decade.But decent acting will satisfy the taste of classic movie lovers.Personally seen this film on television,with lot of commercial breaks,that means,if you will rather rent this film,you can have a better time.I don't know how far was this film successful as business,but probably television,and rental stores will help,but looks like they are also can not see real business in this film.
