Typical City Hunter
27 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

City Hunter: the motion picture is a typical city hunter movie.

Full of action, humor and the full cast is present.

As always City Hunter is tangled in funny situations because of his hunger for "Nookie".

Just see this movie, you will love it!
