Excellent Suspense Thriller
2 May 2000 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is pretty good movie if you are willing to accept: the fact that David Soul is German and a Nazi; A lesbian scene in which a heterosexual woman accepts a lesbian with a simple "don't worry" comment after which she gets in the scene; Robertson has an English (Queen's English) speaking son; No-one seems to find anyone, even though they are in-front of them. People die for no reason.

Even with all of that, it is suspensful, sexy, and rather exciting.

Well worth spending a few hours watching on video or on TV (however, only on encrypted channels....)
