Yancy Butler is Fierce!
25 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ok, it's not a big budget film and the cast isn't exactly up to par, but there's one awesome reason to love this movie - Yancy Butler. Her performance is fierce, and so is the character she plays. If you love bad guys, they don't get any badder than this.
