Audience Reviews for Sitting Target

Oliver Reed I am told puked on Steve McQueen? Ian McShane pulls off the pretty boy psychopath as well as Reed pulls off the lonely white hunter. Professionals. Some great moments of the 70s in this piece: - Harry killed a postman? - People just do not foam at the mouth as much as they used to, do they? - some use in kicking a dead dog - 40.41 violence against pornos - english motorcycles explodes - violence against all of british ladies' unmentionables - day/night/day again is pretty priceless Women. Damnit.
