why was this movie made
7 August 2003 | by (New Lenox) – See all my reviews

I had found out about this movie from a good friend of mine because his uncle (Robert Boris) was the writer and director of this train wreck of a movie. He said it was bad and it even temped me more to go and see it. He was so right.

I would not know were to begin to say were this movie gone wrong. Maybe one of the major problems is the fact it was made only to cash in on the big wrestling fad in the late 90's. Lets be honest nobody going to see this movie was exspecting a large charector driven movie. Nevertheless, some how it was way below the horrible expectations I had already had for this movie. Everything was worse than I could have imagined. The acting, the story, and most of all the camera work were some of the worst I've ever seen!

At all, coast stay away from this movie unless you want a cheap little laugh at how bad it is. I feel sorry for my friend's relatives who had put money into this movie! If you could call it that!
