Ghetto blaster sweeps the streets with his modified M-16 assault weapon
19 November 2001 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This movie is full of skull cracking revenge. You know the kinda stuff we all wanna do those ghetto thugs. Admit it you want to blast some sense into some ghetto scum and in the process get it on with a hot blonde chick this and more is Ghetto Blaster. Watch the rocket propelled grenades make widows of ghetto crack whores. If you pi*** of the blaster of ghettos you will pay the ultimate price. This movie rocks, especially the scene with 1 bullet 5 kills.
