cheesy thriller with good sf scenery
15 August 2003 | by (san francisco california) – See all my reviews

This has to go down as one of the cheesiest police thrillers ever.Let me just say the acting is pathetic in a laughable way.Though good san francisco scenery.If you know where the maxwell hotel is in san francisco then youll know what I'm talking about.Some of the movie is filmed inside the lobby and even on the staircase to the 2nd floor.
