16-19 year-olds....rejoice!
18 April 2002 | by (Rotterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

...for this is a nice lightweight, shallow movie that should appeal to the teenage market. The story is pretty basic: two teenagers find love and get entangled in a web of crime while pursuing their quest for easy cash. Actors are unknown and pretty uninspiring, apart from Monet Mazur and the bad guy's speed-addicted henchman - he made me laugh quite a lot throughout the movie.

The biggest problem, for a more mature audience, is the shallowness of the story and the flatness of all characters. Overall, production and music is quite good and I see no problem in checking this out at your local video rental store, if you're in the mood for a light teen-crime action movie.

6/10
