Could have been better.
28 October 2000 | by (Melbourne Australia) – See all my reviews

Good and strong performances from the three leads, holds up a rather weak script. This is certainly no thriller, but more like a chase movie. The fanciful plot, or lack of it, needed a bit more construction on the bones. It just could have been a lot better.
