A True Work Of Art
16 March 2003 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

This movie was awesome.. The actors were great.. I think Billy Wirth should be given more oppurtunities like this.. I like Kevin Dillon a lot better than his brother, Matt... The action made this movie so great.. You can watch it again and again and enjoy it more each time.. A true, genuine work of art.
