a great send-off for fritz Matthews
6 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

fritz Matthews and Ted prior are my two favorite David prior regulars and they are really believable in born killer. this movie is of course ultra-violent in ways you can imagine however this one actually has a plot.

2 deranged convicts one being played by (in the most convincing and strong turn from his good guy roles) Ted prior. they escape from prison and all of a sudden interrupt a paint ball game going on nearby. there prior meets nick played by ( the amazing fritz Matthews in a final movie role/yet a strong performance). prior decides to pick on Matthews and his friends but when he cant take it anymore he decides to strike revenge.

this movie is not about paint ball gun, its all about brain-vs brawn the only play you can find this movie at is on amazon/ebay. director Kimberly Casey has a ideal potential on becoming a good director. this movie is an edge-on-your-seat thriller Matthews and prior are great in their roles, sadly fritz Matthews quit acting somehow, he could of gone somewhere with his career but i guess he wanted more opportunities. therefore if you like Ted prior then its a must-see
