Don't waste your time
19 September 1999 | by Rookie-11See all my reviews

My only question is: Why did they make this movie? Did they have a script or did they make it up as they went along? Boom Boom doesn't look like a Charley Davis. John Garfield probably turned over in his grave if he saw this.
