The Big Sweat got me cold
5 February 2007 | by matthew-marksSee all my reviews

I had no idea what was going on the whole time. Why would anyone care about this guy who steals money from a bank. He isn't cool and he has no personality whatsoever. This movie is just a really boring beginning and then a car cash that really goes no where. I mean are we suppose to be in the 70's but have car phones.

Anyway even with Robert Z'dar this movie does not have any valid point to watch. The ending ends something that never began. I usually like bad movies but this movie takes the cake. LOL its seem like it took them 1 day to film the entire movie. There is no tense moments at all.

I seriously doubt anyone liking this movie but if you want to watch it do it because you are wanting to watch one of the most boring and bizarre plots ever.

I don't know how to describe this movie but if I did I would help you out
