Frank Stallone's Best Role !
16 March 2003 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

Now, We know frank isn't the best actor, and he might not be better than sly....but he makes a great bad guy when he plays one....This Movie is a little hard to find, but is a little known gem...and has great action....An overall good movie.
