A Real Winner
29 June 2001 | by (In my chair) – See all my reviews

I dare to say that this piece of art, DC Cab, is the greatest motion picture to have ever graced the silver screen. I really don't know where to begin. Mr. T is at his best, Busey is, well, Busey, and Adam Baldwin's performance makes the Baldwin Brothers wish he was related to them. This film grabs you right from the start and never lets go. It has plot twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Dazzling dialouge combine with breathtaking cinematography to create something that is truly special and unique. You gotta go on THE RUUUUUUUUN! Just remember kids,I don't work on January 8th, cuz that's Elvis' birthday. I'm still waiting for Gary Busey to receive a lifetime achievement award. Maybe next year.
