An American movie without guns!!
6 February 2004 | by (WA, Australia) – See all my reviews

Nice, little story. Loved to see them make bricks. Ok, the story ain't the most rivetting, but it's nicely told without outrageous effects. Or is it that I long back to a time when the world seemed a more pleasant place?
