Boring.
2 August 1999 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

That's really the only word that describes this little known flick. About a woman who's in with the mob, in which they threatened to kidnap her daughter, and the woman is also involved with some police officer. Watch out for Sarah Michelle Gellar in the role of the daughter, which is the only good thing about this movie. * out of *****.
