A dumb sick violent movie
9 April 2001 | by (st. pete, fl usa) – See all my reviews

I had nothing to do during a raining Sunday, so I watched this abomination. It was either this or figure skating, so I decided this would cause less suffering. I was wrong.

This follows the "Lets kidnap someone and assume their identities" plot line. Of course if it had a good script it could have been more interesting, but noooooooo. It was a stupid unbelievable story full of holes and mindless violence. The acting was not that great, or maybe they were just there for the paychecks. Mel Harris and William Katt were alright, but David "Hotstud" Keith and Marge "I think I'm the best actress that ever lived" Helgenberger overacted like crazy. The scene when the two were trying to get the kid to forget about his parents and enjoy being with them was almost sick. Marge was practically molesting the kid!

If you see this movie on, MOVE ON!!
