Below Tv-Movie quality.
3 July 2000 | by Smartass-DumbassSee all my reviews

I saw this on cable recently and got the feel that it was a tv-movie. The acting was low grade, and the story was shallow. The first scene sets a fast pace, and can pass for a cinema released movie, but after that, the entire film is a joke. It was full of plot holes, and does everything against common sense. The script even has scenes which attempt to make us feel for the characters, but fail miserably. I reason being that we dont even know the characters names, besides the hero.

The dialogue seemed as if it was written by a grade-school student, despite the numerous occasions which the characters swear their heads off. As if profanity is required for a f***ing film to be successful.

I know this comment may sound ironic, but why write these movies if theres nothing good to come out of it.
