Quotes

Wendell: What do you make of it, Mike? White women running around like natives wearing GI-issue gear? Talking English, but weird English. "Headchoppers"? I never heard that word before. But I'll tell you one thing. J.J. and Duvall better make it back here on their own. Cause I ain't leaving here to go look for 'em. Those women are mean. And if they're bad, what do you think their men must be like?

My favourite movie
18 April 2002 | by jennytorkSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this movie. The plot is not predictable, though the actors seem wooden at times. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I wept at the final scenes. True, it requires a bit of a willing suspension of belief, but isn't that what movies are for? This is my favourite TV movie of all time, and I heartily recommend it to anyone and everyone.
