Surprisingly entertaining movie in the vein of True Romance
24 May 2006 | by (New Braunfels, Texas) – See all my reviews

Caught the this movie in the middle at the part where they capture a perp from a biker gang and I couldn't stop watching. I usually hit the remote and wait for it to run again so I can catch it at the beginning but no dice.

Very unusual quirky but cleverly violent movie. Fight scenes don't look choreographed and seem real especially for a made for TV flick like this. The soundtrack is a collection of very unique sounding progressive rock artists I've never heard before. Want to get the soundtrack but it doesn't seem to be out on DVD or CD.

Going to look for it again to see the entire flick.
