Stylish Action Sequences
8 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Robert Lee and the Cast and Crew of "The Operative" did a great job making a movie in 18 days of shooting on a shoestring budget.

If you like action, interesting characters and some unexpected comedy with a sensitive sub-plot, then you should enjoy "The Operative". Sports fans will be impressed with Brian Bosworth's portrayal of more than a couple of characters. Congrats on a low-budget movie with big-budget appeal!
