4 January 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This starts off very badly, even while the credits are rolling: neon pink lettering over a holiday brochure shot of an exotic location. Things pick up slightly in the opening sequence where Kristofferson resolves a siege situation by throwing a small boy out of a 10th floor window. This gives some indication that while, on the whole, the script is not up to much, at least there is some evidence of an imagination at work.

What I mean is the plot does take some unexpected turns and never quite decides about the fate of Adam and what punishment he deserves. Some of the violence is quite graphic for a film which feels as if it was made for showing on television in the afternoon and the sex is also more than you would expect for a film of this nature.
