Simply a very bad film !
3 June 2002 | by amundulaSee all my reviews

My Dear God i must start out by saying that i wasnt happy at all with this. Was it just me or did all the firefighting scenes and Stock shots come from the 70's ?? It was a cross between a bad takeoff on Lethal weapon and loaded weapon. I didnt know if i was supposed to laugh or be serious. My favorite scene is the dialogue between Tom Arnold and his two henchmen trying to cover up the sloppy oil refinery job their doing. i qoute. Go find those damn files and Change your clothers for gods sake you stink. WOW pure bad acting. Meet the stupids / Rosanne. Oh boy
