Sometimes you get the impression that THIS is why commentaries were invented! Just to hear the genius film-shlock scholar, Joe Bob Briggs blast a movie like this which DESERVEDLY needs a shalacking!

For those of you who are still wishing you could get more "Mystery Science Theater 3000" feelings from commentaries, need to seek out the commentary tracks provided by Joe Bob Briggs and brace yourself for a wild time. And I'd say that this one right here is a perfect start.

Even though Joe Bob *Amazingly* manages to provide some information on many of the actors who appear in this grade-zero,forgettable,low-budget "action fest", he shines best describing all the inaccuracies of police tactics seen in the movie. Add that to the incompetent filmmaking,acting and writing (You have to hear the lines in this movie to believe it) and what you have here is a commentary track worth the price of the DVD alone!

Towards the end of the track, Joe Bob tells us that he knows this was a tough one to sit through. But thanks to you Joe, you made it worthwhile!

This is the perfect commentary! I mean the movie is entertainingly bad on its own, but this commentary really fills in the parts where the movie would otherwise get dull. Joe Bob clearly came prepared for this one. He knows just when to stop talking and let the movie speak for itself. Then he picks up the slack and gives some hilarious insight when needed. He also provides some real information on the cast and crew who worked on the film which is interesting to hear for a movie that has absolutely no star cred to speak of. Overall, I would definitely recommend watching this one with the commentary track the first run through. If you are brave enough to watch the movie again then you might want to try and provide your own commentary next time. Definitely worth your time.
