What a let-down
8 January 1999 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The first was mediocre, the second was great, but the third entry STINKS! Leo Rossi's character here is repulsive and not likable in any way. Everybody acts unbelievably stupid here. Pre-release cuts to prevent the movie getting an NC-17 also hurt the film. The actor who plays the villain actually isn't bad, considering the material he's given.
