Nice squib action!
9 June 1999 | by movieguy-36See all my reviews

Nice squib action...and a bit of character development while we're at it, too. This one provided a lot more action than I expected, and even features a magnificent car chase sequence. Director DeCoteau did a great job, and also honed his skills with the similar Lady Avenger. Plus, I urge you to check out Prey of the Jaguar. So if you're looking for action, go for American Rampage. Cool, explosive cover art, too.
