Goofs

An asthma inhaler is not an aqualung. Klein could not have kept breathing underwater because he had his inhaler with him. It relies on mixing the steroids with the surrounding air; it doesn't itself provide oxygen. See more »

One of my favorite mystery films
31 January 2001 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This is a film which I have recommended on many a Friday night when all the new releases are already gone and others are looking for a good mystery/suspense title. I have seen it 3-4 times which is rare for me, especially for a mystery. It is fine entertainment with an excellent story. Not the highest production value, but it's unique story makes up for it. Highly recommended, especially on a weekend night when there just aren't any NEW mystery/suspense releases on the shelf.
