My number 166 movie
13 January 2001 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

You have read correctly. This is my number 166 movie. Sandra Bullock does a good job in this thriller, and she looks good. This is a film that you like , when you watch it 2 or 3 times. But the more you watch, the worse it gets. So I recommend watching this not more than 3 times. I rated this film 8/10, because it is a good thriller.
