Great hard as nails movie
23 May 2003 | by (Birmingham UK) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film having caught it on Channel 5. Both times it was on I missed the start.

Please note this film was also known as "Six Angry Men" over here in the UK.

Michael Rooker is a really underrated actor and this is another underrated film. It's as hard as nails. SWAT Cops kill bad guys, FBI HRT Kill SWAT Cops not before lots of SWAT Cops kill cops and FBI Guys.



You have to see this movie its as Rooker is as hard as nails and Patrick is the perfect choice for the leader of bad guys. This film will have you on the edge of your seat all the way through.
