You've gotta be kiddin' me...
14 April 2003 | by whoTheFuqRyouSee all my reviews

I can't determine how bad this movie was cuz it was pretty embarrassing. There is nothing that would seem real in this movie and I was not impressed with the Boondock Saints rip-off in this. The damn script was nothin' but shootin' every 5 lines, it's like watchin' a fake war movie!! I was really heated I wasted an hour an a half of my life on this complete mishap of a movie..

this was terrible and needs to be left alone, watch Paid In Full instead...
