This is an Old Story
13 February 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

All the actors did a great job of trying to act and some were better than others, and I really must give them credit for trying to act with a story that we have heard over and over again. Fred Williamson, (Dakota Smith)," Soft Target",'05, plays the role of a guy who takes the law into his own hands after a horrible killing which involves him personally. There is dope being pushed in the neighborhood to young high school athlete's and it causes all kinds of problems. Some families are killed needlessly and for no reason there is lots of blood shed through out the town. Gary Busey,(Felix) "Buckaroo",'05 plays a good supporting role, however, the story is very weak and the actors sure have a hard time trying to act in this film.
