(it) wrote: Los cortes entre las escenas de esta pelcula de metraje encontrado se vuelven toda una pesadilla para el espectador, sus personajes carecen de credibilidad. Lo que se puede pensar que sea su punto ms dbil por su bajo presupuesto termina siendo su punto ms fuerte, los efectos visuales, que sin ser sorprendentes, estn a buen nivel.
(ag) wrote: Decidedly average action-thriller about a U.S. Border Patrolman who is blackmailed by his old gang into smuggling drugs over the border. Notable mainly for having the worst car chase I can remember seeing, which is odd considering there are so many shots of cars driving along.

(jp) wrote: Good cast, but not so interesting story of moonshine runner turned race car driver. I only watched this because William Smith had a supporting role and he wasn't in it nearly enough.
(br) wrote: Nicholas Cage is fun, but superhero movies have come a long way since Ghost Rider. A few fun scenes, but nothing too fantastic here.
(fr) wrote: Well made western with a moody Morricone esque score and nice cinematography. Usual revenge plot, but well done, so still enjoyable despite hitting notes we've all heard before. Well worth a watch, especially for die hard fans of this genre.
