Leaves MUCH to be desired
2 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

Where to begin? This is one of the biggest pieces of crap that I have seen in a long time. Come on my four year old sister could make a better movie with a camcorder. This movie is extremely slow through the first hour, with little, to no sembalance of a plot or story. Lou Diamond Phillips acting was sub-par as usual. The editing was also very poorly done. At one moment you are on one side, the the other, over and over again. Then the ending leaves much to be desired. The story, if you can call it a story has no closure at all. The horrible ending is previewed by a car chase with a power ram and a bmw. The power ram bounces around like a ball, it is pretty funny. I strongly recommend not wasting your time on this movie. It isn't even one of those bad movies that are entertaining because it is bad. This movie just plain SUCKS
