The one thing I liked.
8 July 1999 | by (Montreal, QC) – See all my reviews

The movie was filmed entirely in Montreal (my home town), and it was pretty cool spotting local areas. Aside from that, it had to be one of the lamest car chases I have ever seen. A 1985 Tempo and an even older Suburban? What was the budget $200? Overall movie? Blech.
