Not so bad at all
16 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

At first sight i thought this film is going to be awful,boring thriller because it was released on our very bad TV channel, but when I start watching it, it was becoming more and more interesting. I was surprised when I saw that one of the leading actress is Kim Basinger who is very good, Academy Award winner. Her role in this film is OK, but she has some better films. However this one is worth to watch, it is a great suspense!
