Well, if you like action flicks...
8 November 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

Then I say go for it! But for those of you who want a movie with real substance and plot, run away from this film. I kind of found this movie entertaining in a brainless sense. Chuck Norris turns in a typical performance, the action is the same as we've all seen before, and it was pretty much 80's all over. A definite must-see for action addicts.
