Bad - Don't Waste Your Time
1 April 2003 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

This movie is a stinker from the start. The story is bad, the action scenes are bad and most of the acting is bad. The hero is a super human character that marshals his strength when thinking about his poor abducted sister. The women fall in love with him in microseconds, willing to give up everything for this guy. He is good looking but that is way to unbelievable

  • even daughters betray their fathers after a day with this guy. He jumps


through windows of speeding trucks, jumps off of buildings in single bound, dodges bullets, well you get the picture. There are three decent songs in the movie but the set-up and lead-ins are all too unbelievable. Leave this one where you find it and get anything else.
