It still sucks by sdbiolaw February 16, 2005 - 3:30 PM PST

Listen folks, I don't care how many renowned actors show up in the course of this unbelievable caper film! It still sucks! After about fifteen minutes, one may begin to realize that one saw it on television about ten years ago in the middle of a weekday afternoon while previously unemployed, and that one couldn't sit through to the finish even then.

The worst part is a white poodle that keeps turning up even after days of jungle chases covering many miles. Is it coming back to you now, how much you came to hate that little dog? Imagine a robbery so well planned that the protagonists parachute in with a white poodle for the sole purpose of distracting certain Doberman guard dogs! Now imagine those Dobermans killing that poodle ... unfortunately, this did not occur to the screenwriters of "High Risk".
