Aptly named film!
12 September 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie should be treated as a pariah for anyone in search of entertainment. It looks as though the whole thing has been thrown together in the space of a couple of days by a bunch of film students to cash in on the success of American History X.
