Very Weak
24 August 2004 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

This movie is pretty bad.

The editing is horrible with terrible jump cuts and with narration that repeats itself every five minutes when Jack said something.

One the director's last movies, "Paper Bullets" was a masterpiece compared to this trash. M. Emmet Walsh and Ben Gazzara (They should know better) put in "paycheck" performances at most. The direction, writing, mostly everything about this movie is amateurish. Don't be fooled by the cool looking cover or goofy tagline

("Shoot from the hip or don't shoot at all") It's barely an action movie.
