Not bad.
28 February 1999 | by (Worthington MA) – See all my reviews

This film was ok. But not as good as some would say. Chris Tucker and Charlie Sheen work well together. But out of the 2 of them I'd say that Chris Tucker stole the show. He plays this cocky guy who gets framed for murder. Charlie Sheen plays reporter James Russell who was responsible for getting him arrested in the beginning of the film. Then as a bus of fugitives were being transferred to another Jail a terrorist on the bus has his group break him lose. James Russell {Sheen} tries to help Hatchet{Tucker} prove to the city that he is innocent.

This movie has some bad language but I have heard worse.

So see this movie for yourself. Then tell me what you think
