O.K. shoot outs, bad acting, good car chases = watchable movie
20 March 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well this movie wasn't that good and I usually really like action movies, The shootouts where all right but nothing spectacular, the acting was downright horrible, and the car chases were good if you don't compare them to ones in other films such as Ronin. Overall I woudn't recommend this movie unless you can't find any better movie on the action shelf. The car chases where the only thing stopping me from giving it a 4.

5 out of 10.
