What was I thinking to waste a $1.00 on this movie!!!!
20 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It irked me how he spoke. Was that suppose to be a southern drawl? I wonder why he chose to do that??? I was embarrassed for him. The fight scenes were ridiculous. I mean, how much of a beating can a person take before they are knocked unconscious? I guess the bad guys must have been on steroids or something??? The ending confused me because I must have missed something during the movie. Oh, I know what happened, I didn't miss anything, I was just bored!!! It's a shame because I used to like SS movies. You think one would get better with age. If he still wants to act, maybe he should try a different type of role. It's just my opinion.
