C Movie Budget, A Rated Movie
23 November 2015 | by PlatinumJewelerSee all my reviews

Many movies are typical story's we've all seen. That's what I was watching until one person came along and changed everything. The story now is in a place you have no idea where it's going or how it will end. The drug dealer is like no one you have seen before and given that this review is in 2015 and the film was 1985 his talent is now known for you can witness his beginnings. The film also has another star actor in his early work to look out for as he became an A rated star. If you're like me and like a low budget movie that goes way beyond it's limits, brings you actors making a name for themselves and no other film to compare it to you won't be disappointed.
