A 1980s WEST SIDE STORY
27 August 2001 | by (Laplace,Louisiana) – See all my reviews

This movie is like a West Side Story without all of the singing and dancing but,with plenty of blood and gore. The best thing about this movie is the fight scenes but some of the excessive violence can be a little off putting. Watchable but nothing special.
