Brian Trenchard-Smith's lowest ebb SURELY?
12 October 2001 | by bamptonjSee all my reviews

You know how in movies like Boogie Nights they have reference to those throw-a-way 70's C-Grade action flicks?

Well, this completely fits the stereotype. Terrible acting, low budget. negligible special effects - though there was an amusing scene where a helicopter dropped dynamite into the sea as it pursued a swimmer. I can't really remember the plot, but i doubt the original writer could either, so...

I really don't think anybody could watched more than 10 minutes of this... Still, it may be better than 'JOCKS'
