double name
29 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie Hard Rush has also been released under the title Ambushed they are one and the same film a bit confusing for movie buffs,as to the film, its just a run of the mill action movie, as Dolf is ageing maybe his best years are behind him. I have always been a fan of Dolf and Vinnie, but the films of late from these two are becoming a bit to predictable. They are both coming up to there sell by date I,am afraid, Dolf in particular has been around a long time, and I have noticed in a lot of the fast moving shots he is having trouble keeping up, may be its time for him to take the money and run, which I,am afraid he has trouble doing now, pity he has made some very good movies in his time.
