User Reviews

pretty decent
29 September 2019 | by FeastModeSee all my reviews

This movie has a bit of a straight-to-dvd feel to it. some of the acting is bad. but i enjoyed it for the most part. the music was awesome. the action scenes weren't great but were mostly pretty good. a few questionable parts and dumb moments, but decent overall (1 viewing 9/28/19)
