One of the worst films I've ever seen
30 December 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Don't even bother watching this movie. I watched it at a theatre and wanted to leave half way through it but decided against it since I'd already spent my money on this worthless movie anyway. The plot is predictable, the action scenes worse than a home-made movie, and even a film school freshman could have done a better job on the editing.
