Bad sound effects
17 October 1998 | by (Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie was OK, a little unrealistic, fairly violent, but when they are punching each other, the sound-effects were horrible. People kept getting shot in the chest, but they never die, they seem almost fine shortly afterwards. A lot of people seem to get shot in the eye. And I didn't understand why the bad guy wanted to get shot in the hand.
