Reynolds kicks arss.
5 March 2003 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliant film, you can see it has a low budget but the three great actors in it make up for it, Rod Steiger, Tom Berenger, And Of course the best of all Burt Reynolds. This was an enjoyable movie all round with a very interesting story, I really love the character that Reynolds plays, he was such I easy going guy, who really dident give a damb about anything, well done Mr. Reynolds.

9/10
