Why nobody vote for this movie. It's GREAT
9 March 2005 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

yeah, thats true "The Junkman" is wonderful. This is one of the best movies with... what i talking about, it is the best movie with CARS.So men, boys also you ladies Watches this film it's horrible good!!! No really i'm not kidding, if you see it you'll never forget it. I promise. What only 67 votes SHAME OF YOU!!! And it's much better than the Dominic Sena's "Gone in sixty seconds"(2000) with Nicolas Cage. I think it's also better than the first part "Gone in 60 seconds"(1974). It's the best role of H.B. Halicki. Like you see now i'm big fan on this film, but my all family and friends love it. So what is conclusion? You must see it with you own to understand.
