An ex-convict gets ready for freedom
13 November 2001 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Though I watched this movie on tv, I have to say that I enjoyed it very much. Michael Ironside and Powers Boothe give extraordinary performances. It's a nice treat, so if you have some spare time, see this wonderful action movie.
