This review is for the Amazon VOD rental of this film. Eric Roberts is a very good
actor stuck in a super long series of grade B or lower movies. Roberts is almost
always entertaining to watch even in the really bad ones. I can't say that about
this one. It's a decent story but every actor in it sleep walks through it. Roberts
is too good an actor to be stuck in trash like this. There is very little I can
recommend about this flick.

Loved the movie. Good chase scenes, and Farrah Forke was awesome. If you like action, this is a good movie to watch.

This movie was soooo bad that I'd rather watch a Dolph Lundgren movie marathon, and that has to be the near equivalent to choosing to commit suicide by slow cooker! It seemed like a movie made in the late 60s or early 70s, instead of something near the turn of the 21st century. To put this in context, this movie was released the same year as "Payback," "The Matrix," "8MM," "The Corruptor," "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," "True Crime," and "In Too Deep, among films in or near the same genre. How in the world did this dated, poorly-choreographed, slow "action" film get made?

If there were anything to SPOIL, here's where I'd advise SPOILER ALERT. But, alas, this movie was a rotten tomato before it was even planted!

Let's start with the script was awful. If I'd seen this movie in 1972, I would've given it one star. But, the mere fact that this movie was released in 1999, it gets even harsher treatment. None of the actors gave a credible performance, and the stereotypical "wise guys" seemed like they were plucked from an episode of "Starsky and Hutch," "Kojak," or "Police Woman." Absolutely nothing made sense in this movie--from the plot and plot twists to the action sequences. It's as if the screenwriter did no research whatsoever. The CIA is performing hits for a mob family. A former hitman for that crime family has chosen to spare the life of an ordered hit, and so he went on the run into witness protection, where within a year, he's set up house with a mother and her eight- or nine-year-old daughter who's calling him "Daddy" already. And when the mom learns she's been shacked up with a former hitman, her response is basically, "Do you have any more secrets?" and "We have a lot to discuss..." Seriously?

This is a good movie if you like a lot of action. The pace was quick, the story was interesting, and I was totally engrossed from beginning to end. I definitely would recommend this movie.

Take the Mob, lots of action and mix it with a well written comedic script and you get a surprisingly enjoyable movie. Tired of the same old bloated budget spoofs? This is one to watch...

Lame action scenes and it is pretty boring. Watch this with caution. People shoot the guns at the ground and somehow they hit up high.
