User Reviews

 
Not worth fighting for.
8 April 2002 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Typically low-rent action fare, full of repetitive action scenes that are neither exciting nor funny. I guess you have to get in the right state of mind to enjoy a film like this, otherwise the annoying characters, cheesy humor and stupid plot just might exhaust you. (*1/2)
