Lots of action, and gun fire, a good movie.
17 July 1999 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

At this movie Tim Abell really shows what his character really is - Psycho! (A very nice play) A good movie , about drug dillers and a lot of military action against them, solo action , four/five man against a hole drug dillers. A little non-realistic, but over and all a nice , action pack film! See it if you like military movies.
