Good Movie
30 May 1999 | by (Hamilton, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I had many doubts about viewing this film after all the negative reviews that it was given. But I was intrigued by the story line and I did not want this movie to end. I found it to be filled with suspense, and it sure kept me guessing. And it was a delight to see newcomer Liv Tyler do a great job.

I would recommend this film, but then everyone is entitled to their opinion.
