NOT YOUR USUAL RODDY PIPER MOVIE
8 November 1999 | by (Benbrook, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is not your usual Roddy Piper action movie. He plays a multi-dimensional character who has a pretty messed up life. His "girlfriend" can't decide between him and his former buddy, Scott. Of course, Roddy can't seem to decide if he wants to settle down with her. Otherwise, he has a pretty simple life running boats for sale from point A to point B for people. Simple until Tawny Kitaen and her psycho husband Juan Fernandez come into his life.

Roddy shows his romantic, gentle side with both his girlfriend and Tawny. But, be assured that there is plenty of bone crushing, shoot-'em-up, fist fighting action in this flick.

If you would like a different Piper, this is a good show.
