User Reviews

A little repetitive, but overall entertaining, tale
23 August 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Free Verse" is an entertaining tale with Byrne Piven playing a fun-loving, recently freed Latin American writer whose life is in danger from political activists.

The delightfully sexy Yamil Borges plays Piven's daughter, Bianca. Appearing in this episode is Bianca Jagger as a cool, stylish and seductive assassin! Jaime Tirelli also appears as bad guy Gomez.

Interestingly, a young mega-producer Michael Bay appears as a goon in this episode.

8 out of 10. A little repetitive towards the end but still capable of maintaining tension, this isn't a bad tale.

The music soundtrack contains tracks from Honeymoon Suite, Suicidal Tendencies, Nancy Allen and Bruce Cockburn.
