O.K. Kris was good, but what about Scott Wilson!
23 January 2001 | by (AUSTRALIA) – See all my reviews

As a major Scott Wilson fan I think he should have received a lot more credits for his character in this movie. He was in nearly every part as the second main character and was brilliant as the obsessed Stilwell.

Like he uses in all his movies, his southern accent (which is genuine) and expressive eyes, bring out the best in this talented actor.

To play along side the likes of Demi Moore, Sylvester Stallone and not to mention staring in a movie written by the Pope himself called Our God's Brother (1997), should show just how good an actor he is.
