Not a bad Actioner
17 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When you consider when this film was made, it may have been ahead of it's time. Michael Parks seems to get better and better. Nice ending.

I think some of the chase scenes in the desert were damn good. As good as some I've seen made since then with CGI and all that stuff to help.

True, the plot seems dated now, but it's still worth seeing. Denise Crosby actually acts in this one! And not too bad either.

Plus there's some awfully FUNNY lines too.

The music is done by the same guy who been doing music for Penn and Teller over the years.

It's worth a rental...if you can find it.
