Crazy movie
7 March 2014 | by atinderSee all my reviews

Tattoo (2002)

What a crazy movie, the movie start of with a lady who is naked walking in the rain, her back as just been skinned off, then she gets hit by a bus that crash and blows up.

Then police are investigation that body at morgue and find out that there finger in side her, she as bit of the attack sh-allowed!

That was just first 4 minutes of the movie , the action packed for the first hour so, fast moving,

it gets little slower just after hour into movie but it dose not last long, as pick up speed again for last 20 minutes.

I did not get the ending at all, I wish it was bit was clear.

Really good movie and great acting in the movie.
