This film has all the elements a good movie should NOT include
22 January 1999 | by XpleedSee all my reviews

This movie has all the elements a good movie should NOT include. Really bad acting. A script filled with cliché's.

It's about drill seargent north. A mixture between terminator and the kindest father alive. One day his family gets killed, and he gets shot. Now he's after revenge. By only listening to this you KNOW its a bad movie. Add to that all the things like a corrupt FBI agent, a boy with trouble and a big drug dealer. This film is among the worst ever seen. But you can always see it for a laugh.
