Steaming Canadian Turd
22 January 2004 | by spowell69See all my reviews

You know it's a bad sign right off the bat when:

  • characters jump on a city bus (which must be free, because nobody has to pay) and start smoking cig's. Where is this?


  • these really cool bad guys who rob jewellery stores for a living say that money doesn't mean anything, and proceed to burn the money they just *robbed* from people. So why exactly do they bother??? And if money means nothing to them, why are they so obsessed and concerned with it? Who wrote this crap?


  • you recognize people you've seen in canadian pizza pocket ad's


  • the 'bad' guys actually look like people from pizza pocket ad's dressed up like bad guys, making stupid 'mean' faces.


  • jason priestly is a bad guy


Not even worth listing the many reasons why this movie is so annoyingly bad. How do these things get made? It actually made me sad to see Lou Gosset in this c-grade project.

Luckily I saw this on TV, so it didn't cost a thing. But it did cost me time. Well, about an hour, until I finally couldn't take anymore. Save yourself both time and money.

Avoid.
