As a not-serious-movie, this one scores high on my list.
17 August 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

If you're very fond of movies that don't mean a thing. Then this might just be the one. There is a lot of action and you don't have to keep your mind at the story, because, in my opinion, there isn't one. A perfect movie for a horrible stormy November evening, while you've got nothing else to do. just sit back and watch 100 criminals smashing each others heads with baseball bats, or trying to shoot-to-kill. Ice-T plays the roll of Marcus, a chief of the syndicate, and he needs to get rid of some lower-rank members of that same syndicate. His contempt of a hell's Angel look-alike is clearly visible when he says: "Then don't play." As a not-serious-movie, this one scores high on my personal list.
