A great comedic relief for Van Peebles!, 14 January 1999
Author: anonymous from Hollywood, Los Angeles

Mario Van Peebles has proven himself again a talented actor AND director. Love Kills is a great mixture of love and mayhem, comedy and tragedy. In addition to the superb talent of Mario Van Peebles, Melvin Van Peebles has a great supporting role as Abel. After strings of action films, it's great to see Mario starring in a funny comedy.
