Not Good
23 February 2001 | by (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is a very bad movie, not because the acting is bad or even the directing, the problem is that the script is horrible. It doesn't make any sense at all. Even with the presence of great actors such as Julian Sands, Ned Beatty and Rod Steiger, this movie is a complete shame.
