This movie was absolutely horrible
22 August 1999 | by (Maine, USA) – See all my reviews

This is dumb. Don't even rent it. I fell asleep 30 minutes into it. It is just some unrealistic movie about some guy on a power trip. He thinks he can kill anyone in his way. The sad part is, with America anyways, you can usually make a movie about killing that a lot of people like, but they couldn't even make the killing exciting in this movie. Never see this piece of garbage.
