Review by anonymous (posted on 23-Apr-2006)

I would just like to comment on Mr. Hale's performance in this film. What in the hell was big Al doing? He only grunted a few times. He had what ammounted to NO lines. He was something of a glorified extra. They killed him off midway through the picture. It was almost as if this was his debut in films. Like they pulled him from central casting and gave a shoot to some new commer. They could just have lost him on the cutting room floor for all the good he contributed to this limp film.
