Thoroughly uninteresting.
23 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was the third turkey in a row for Charles Bronson, after "The White Buffalo" and "Love and Bullets". It's so utterly, extraordinarily dull that you may not quite make to the end. There is little plot, no action, no emotion, no humor and generally nothing to engage your interest in any way; even the supporting characters are colorless. The previous reviewer was right: don't bother. (*1/2)
