a triumph for Richmond
23 February 2002 | by fukko123See all my reviews

This is a great film featuring a great actor (Branscombe Richmond) and some great cameo's from Bill Cosby and Tony Peck (the bloke who did the voices for scooby doo) The film opens to a huge explosion as a gang of hi-tech criminals storm a bank and make off with the money. Henderson (Richmond) then double crosses his gang who hunt him for the rest of the film. The action is non stop and the scene were Richmond realises that the man who killed his wife was a one armed man is spine tingling. Bill Cosby is tremendous as Chavez the Mexican and the show down between the two is one of the highlights of cinematic history. This is a great film and everyone should see it.
