great hour long music video
3 September 2003 | by (alabama) – See all my reviews

not alot to say about this movie. no plot, lots of action. like a long music video. fun to watch. chris lambert looks great with the bleach blonde hair. and you got to love ice tea in this film. the only complaint is about that little girl. very freaky. unless you a hugh lambert fan not worth buying but a good rental.
