Bus ride makes a good film
22 January 2001 | by (Essex, England) – See all my reviews

COULD SPOIL IT FOR YOU, BUT YOU WOULDN'T CARE MUCH ANYWAY This is a film that i've only seen twice. It plays on the bizzare premise that hijacking a bus full of schoolchildren would make your girlfriend believe that you love her. However, the film is remarkably well executed, with a score that caught my mind. There is superb acting from the main two characters, but the supporting cast let the film down a bit. A film that is worth seeing however.
