Content Scenes in the grim underworld of Louisiana, discussions in the police station as the FBI try to take charge. A number of prolonged and slightly confusing shoot-outs mostly with hand guns. A bit of sex and nudity and quite a high body count, with drinking and drugs.
A View No-one involved in the making of this film had much experience, and it shows. There are moments of tension but there are a lot of action films to choose from, so this might not be the one. I did not like it much.
