Very ordinary action flick
15 December 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Shelter" is a very mediocre B-flick which tells of an ATF agent in Arkansas who hides out with a Greek mafia gun runner when he learns his own people are corrupt. Sound implausible?? Well, it's no more implausible than the cars which explode like 100 gallons of napalm or the firefights were the handgun wins out over the automatic rifles, etc...all stuff we've seen before. "Shelter" offers some shootouts, some rolling action, some stunts, some pyro, and not much sex all held together with an unlikely story and an attempt to make the film better with some good camera work, sets, lighting, etc. A mediocre watch for action junkies only.
