Very Good
12 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once Again, there are egg heads looking to find The green mile when U watch steven segal or chuck norris. This is not that kind of movie. BUT, If U want a nice action mystery movie with decent acting then this is your movie. This is a Gem of a flick. Excellent for a guy who gets home late and wants to watch a movie. Kids girls or boys having a sleep over. Father - son/daughter type. I have a 9 year old girl who loves to curl up on my chest watching this kind of movie. Its great, and thank U Chuck and steven for giving us so many. Silent Rage was Awesome also. I recommend it. Don't try to expect too much out of the different kinds of films. Your supposed to have fun with this kind, or scared or whatever.
