The Slowest 85 Min Film I Have Ever Seen.....
24 July 2003 | by (North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This film is so so slow. However, I will say this, the last 10 mins of it ALMOST makes the film redeem itself. I mean how can you beat a kill sequence intermeshed with a crappy version of the bluegrass song "The Orange Blossom Special". Thats right, you cant beat that folks. So for the first 75 mins, I give it a 0/10, for the last 10 mins, I give it a 10/10, with an average score of 5/10.
