Pathetic
25 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

Boring. Bad action, acting, scripting and direction. I am a fan of Mark L Lester but this 'attempt' at making Eric Roberts into a super hip killer did not work. Brings shame to the whole action genre, and casts a bad shadow on other similarly themed films like 'The Killer'. Boring and embarrassing. See this movie only if you have 90 minutes left to live and want to die miserably.
