Trivia

Director Peter Svatek decided to dub out uses of the word "fuck" in the movie because he believed it might help prevent it from receiving an "R" rating. However, since the movie was still too gory and violent, it had to be rated "R" for those reasons. See more »

Boring and dumb
23 April 2001 | by al-exSee all my reviews

Gee, this movie is bad. It took me three attempts to finally get through. Conversations and acting is just "artificial" and horribly bad. Story is far from being complex (least to say). I tried to convince myself that the $7 purchase price can somewhat compensate the missing parts but instead I just understood why it was that cheap. I honestly don't recommend this to anybody unless you'd want my copy... :)
