Great story, well made movie
16 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

There are many metaphors in this movie, but the one, I think, is the most important is that; Once you have accepted your lot in life you can improve yourself beyond your own expectations. The story is straight forward, good guys versus bad guys, and some of the stunts are really unbelievable. But, overall I recommend this movie just because it is a great story.
