great script
7 January 1999 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Unbelievably good script. Really shocking and unexpected in parts, especially the double-crosses. Linda Koslowski was excellent and so different from her Crocodile Dundee days, and Loggia is also very good. A relative of Manchurian Candidate.
