22 November 2003 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This movie was wonderful from beginning to end. No dragging or dull moments. Great cast,score,acting,locations,script,and direction can all be found right in this one movie. Some of the lines in this movie are classic. This is a must own movie. (9 out of 10)
