TERRIBLE!!
15 August 2003 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Well, I can truly say that this is the worst movie I ever seen in my entire life!! I never saw a movie with such terrible acting!!!!! I have no idea how this film made it on DVD or Video! The only nice part about the film was Judd Nelson. He was the ONLY person who acted average. I got pretty tired of the Trasher's low vocabulary! ("Give me the key", "Where is the key") So, don't go see this movie!!! You'll be very disappointed!!!
