Gary Busey Shines.
3 January 2002 | by Pants1189See all my reviews

Most people would consider this movie a little lacking in realism. This may be true, but any movie that puts Gary Busey in a clown suit, and gets him beat up by a group of mexicans, is definately a quality movie in my book. This movie, despite it's somewhat lack of insanity on the part of the Buse's character, set a standard in action movies, to be copied by such films as Fled.
