Its a warzone!
2 June 2002 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

When i was first going to the movies to see the new and well liked movie Busted Up i was sceptical. I wasnt sure if this was just yet another Bloodsport copy.

Frank Pellegrino really gives a once in a life time acting experience, he simply has it all! Class, charm and looks and of course the will and strength to accomplish such excellent acting as he does in Busted Up. This really is a movie for all martial arts fans and actually all other people who has the slightest idea of what a good movie is. Make some popcorn and enjoy this great Action blast of a movie. If you liked movies like Platos Run, Titanic, Gone with the wind and eye of the tiger you will be obsessed with this incredible movie about a man who knows what he wants and who gets what he wants.

As Eddie Lomax came to find a reason so did Frank Pellegrino.

A Real classic!
