a real very good movie with a superstar : Denis Hopper
10 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I want you to view it and not listen those who are turning down such a thriller. I have seen thousands of movies and this is in the top 10%. He is in shape and when he runs, you really feel he hates the mobs. He also comes out is residence naked running after another mob! There is action all the time. You have to be spoiled at an unseen level to feel cheap-mind in turning down such good classic movie of good and bad with a spicy outraged cop! Every movie of that caliber merits some attention and a more balanced judgment. Have a good time fellows! xx xx xx xx xx xx
