Terrible Movie, Don't waste your time.
7 July 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I have seen some BAD movies in my time. Most of em I can dismiss as a good time cause it's all about gettin togetha with some buddies and having a good time or a good laugh. This is not one of those cases. This movie was so utterly lame that I feel violated by watching it. Absolutely nothing redeeming in it at all. (Believe me I searched long and hard to find something) Do yourself a favour and let this one rot on the shelf along with Operation Golden Phoenix.
