Fantastic movie! Reminds me of a heist!
2 August 2012 | by mousey1See all my reviews

36 hours in the life of a madman! It sure was!!! Great film, even though it is old!

Absolutely electric! He just disobeys the law and does what he wants (not that it is a good thing) - just a reminiscent past from the mafia and organised crime units within America!

Action packed, a great film to be watched, and you can get it on the cheap because it's so old :)

It reminds me of the time Hoxton stole a $5 million diamond from a secured vault and also when Dallas effectively started the zombie pandemic!

Absolutely fantastic! Which reminds me... Payday Wolfpack comes out on 7th August 2012! Should be a steamy occasion!

Let your imagination wander! Again good film! 8/10
