Simply Amazing
20 December 2007 | by drastelloSee all my reviews

I would have to say that Sloane is probably the best movie I have ever seen. I saw this movie at blockbuster and I knew right away from the elaborate cover that this was the movie for my wife, 2 young children and I. We sat next to the fire with a clear view of the television in suspense for Sloane's crack the whip action. Between Sloane's one liners and non-stop action our family was glued to the television...literally. Let me just say we never returned it and our family uses so many lines from the movie that we say we have a secret language called "Sloanian" everyone loves it and wish they could speak. Once this movie catches on it is sure to be a cult phenomenon to the likes of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Please, do it for yourself, do whatever you can to buy or at least watch this spectacle of a movie.
