Let me get out of here!
8 January 2002 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Cardboard actioner without any charm. A policeman (Busey) goes to a troubled country of Latin American (great "cliché") hunting a wanted criminal (Rivers) but things doesn't go well and they find themselves attached to each other by a chain. Routine plot had better examples in the past. Extremely boring and dull. I give this a 4 (four).
