7 July 2003 | by KGB-Greece-PatrasSee all my reviews

Everythink is just perfect in this one. the direction, is fast and certainly has opinion and style. hilarious humour & cool cynicism. fair acting and AWESOME pace!!! this is INTENSE.

Recommended for all fans of action films

P.S. About the Tarantino lovin' geeks thing: I like Tarantino acting, but when it comes to directin Avary or Rodriguese are surely the winners, and make true art
