Superb movie, edge of the seat, Ms Powers excels in this dual role
16 July 2003 | by (Portsmouth, England) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie not long after it came out, something to watch on a rainy evening. It was unusually compelling, Ms Powers delivers a performance exceeding anything I have seen her do before or since, not simply as she plays two separate roles, but 'involves' the viewer in what she is enacting. I am not a fan, but this movie alone would stop me from disparaging her work. The story moves along at a fair pace with the twists and turns of a much heavier thriller without the necessity for gruesome scenes. I have been trying to buy this movie for 15 years now and the guys that have it are keeping it, and I understand why.
