      Audience Member Wesley Snipes is the reason for this 1/2-star rating. His acting is so bad and his face is quite disgusting to watch. So, no matter what the story line is or how much money they put in the film, Snipes would ruin it all. I can't stand Snipes' acting and his arrogant attitude in all of his movies. Years ago, when I watched the first few movies starring Snipes, I could only stand a few minutes into the movie. Now, his name on the line-up would keep me away! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Typical 1980's action flick with mildly inspired action scenes & cinematography. Wait.... - this is a 2006 film! Still, the chick looks a bit like Salma Hayek or Susan Lucci. Easy on the eyes & on the mind. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Underrated as hell. People seems to forget that it's a direct to video B-movie and for that it's almost perfect. Especially the action is really well made and Snipes looks like he is enjoying the movie. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Manages to be both nasty and dull at the same time. If all you're looking for is loud and brainless then this might just this might do, but I just found it irritating. Dialogue trying to be clever and ending up embarrassing, chase scenes and explosions everywhere but somehow managing to be predictable; I lost count of the clichés and I lost the will to keep on watching. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member i love wesley snipes he's my boyfriend Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member THIS MOVIE WAS HORRIBLE - Wesley what were you thinking Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
