Dude is on a revenge mission, gets caught up in giant subplot
13 October 2015 | by jamespetercarrollSee all my reviews

Yeah, recently picked this up as a beta max. No expectations, have no idea what kind of movies were being made in France at this period in time. I usually throw it on and listen t it. The thing that got me, is that no matter how detailed and convoluted the subplot became, I didn't mind it cause the dialogue and delivery are so good. It's really weird. Mix in some random nudity, violence, and good stunts and makes for a good ride.

This stupid thing won't let me submit until I've reached the minimum amount of lines. Since when did I have to follow directions when expressing an opinion.
