Great Movie Great Actor
8 August 2007 | by audreybeaversSee all my reviews

This is a must see movie. Although quite a different role for Billy, he comes through with flying colors. Not to mention that he is drop-dead gorgeous as always. Amazing that his proved acting ability is not recognized more in the media or movie industry and feel that he should be given more starring roles and on the big screen. Few other actors have the many talents that Billy has and hope more people will support him. I have been a fan of Billy's ever since War Party and never tire of watching it or the many others I have purchased over the years. He has also shown that he is an amazing writer and director (MacArthur Park) and look forward to more opportunities for him.
