Well-acted and well-filmed, highly recommended.
12 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Kudos to 8X for delivering a top-notch film which has an engaging story with plenty of action and emotion to keep your attention. Fight scenes were fantastisc, definitely as good as any I've ever seen. Very refreshing to see a film which deals with real-life problems and yet avoids most of the gratuitous material found in the majority of Hollywood films to date.
