flawed action flick definitely worth watching
14 August 1999 | by (Bellevue, Washington) – See all my reviews

A must for Keitel fans (like me). There was some sloppy film making as noted by other reviewers here. It was if they had to film the whole thing in one day, and if the light was wrong, too bad. The plot was NOT complicated. This movie held my attention. Keitel, even when playing a caricature of himself (as Maltin says), is engrossing on screen. Look for Lucy Liu of TV's Ally McBeal fame.
