This movie is not good
20 June 2000 | by HunterDKSee all my reviews

Tommy Lee returns from Vietnam, and the government will take his land. The families in the area have to move, but Tommy Lee will keep his land. Then they start to fight, but only one or two die in the movie, but the front cover said that it would be a fight to the death. - I won this movie in a competition, but I would rather get something else.

Watch it for the fun, else you'll be disappointed.
