Bad movie, though Piper deserves credit
22 January 2000 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I admire Piper for trying something different than the usual action movies he appears in. Here he plays a more normal character who tries to avoid violence and confrontations. However, this movie is so weak in the storyline and execution, I was finally pleased when Piper started bashing heads together. Also, movie has some of the WORST editing techniques I have ever seen in a movie, with jiggily camerawork adding to the chore of looking at what's onscreen, despite some pretty photography.
