Eubanks Does It All (Well, For This Film)
8 November 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Actually, this Grade B film wasn't too bad, considering it's just that: Grade B. As one reviewer aptly points out, when the writer decides he's also going to be the lead actor, that's kind of sign the film may not be that great! I wonder if Corey Michael Eubanks also sold popcorn at the theaters during showings?

This is pretty routine but it had a few intense action scenes, such as the beginning. How many people are escapees using a bus? And getting away! Come on!!!!

After that interesting beginning, the film bogs down deeper and deeper and - snore - deeper, mainly because of the dumb romance angle with the typical no- brained, jealous, spoiled bully boyfriend.

There are so many "Payback" movies that surely you can find one a lot better than this one.
