A marvelous performance by all
22 October 2002 | by (Frederick, Maryland, USA) – See all my reviews

Each actor/actress in this film plays to perfection. As usual, Sean Astin captured my imagination, and I couldn't believe that this was the same person who played Rudy. The plot is well written, and I was captivated by how realistic it was. I could totally see this happening not only in downtown L.A., but in any other big city as well. It was made in 1992, but like Rebel Without a Cause, it stays universal.
