...has heart
6 February 2013 | by pilgrimlinSee all my reviews

Sometimes I like to check out the rating of a movie that I like...and I like this movie. I like the main character/actor in this...thug with heart. As for vinnie jones, of course hes a good actor...but I never even remember that he's in this when I think of watching this movie...and I've watched it a few times, and Im watching it now over a heineken. Good ending, the music fits. I like it. To sum it up, I recently watched 'the package' with dolf and steve austin...now that was a souless boring movie that I could barely pay attention to, and I like those actors. This movie has heart...and Im guessing cost a lot less to make.
