A decent action film, fueled by Billy Drago
14 June 2014 | by crystalartSee all my reviews

It's hard not to like Billy Drago if you like the psycho types. He's at the top of his form in this one, complete with a scar.

Check out Billy Drago's filmography if you want a list of R-rated fare: Hunter's Blood is a good example, and you will also enjoy Guncrazy, Vamp and Death Game.

True Blood has a lot of ups and downs, and it's probably not one you'll watch more than once or twice, but once or twice is enough to enjoy it completely.

Sherilyn Fenn is beautiful.

A young Jeff Fahey is interesting to watch, even if he doesn't really come off as the leader of an urban gang. The interaction between him and is brother (Chad Lowe) has some serious pathos.
