A memorable action film...
14 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

I must say this movie definitely left an impression back about 5 years ago. I taped it off Cinemax and saw it about 3 times because it had an awesome plot concerning this deranged 'Nam vet dude. After he kills a person, he chops off their finger; second victim - 2 fingers, third victim - 3 fingers. And so on. Well, one of his comrades is going to stop him and the action is well choreographed. Has a surprise ending, too. If you're in for a neat little action flick, whether these events could happen or not, I suggest ya check this sucker out.
