This movie is too week ...
1 October 1999 | by michel-fahedSee all my reviews

This is a bad movie cause it doesn't use the story perfectly, this has to be a drama movie more than an action movie, I think that they should have concentrated on the relation brother-to-brother side in this story :this movie shouldn't be a hero story , it should be a family's story ... That's why I think that it's too week ... Don't waste your time with movies like that.
