Cool movie with great effects and fun plot!
12 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This movie was very ambitious and cool for its non-multimillion dollar budget! The special effects are incredible and the production design incredibly powerful, a strong visual vision from Director, Nesher. Plus, some great performances from actors you should recognize - the bad guy is great, Jennifer Grant obviously got her dad's charm (as in, Cary...) and Kristin Minter from ER is quite the sex pot! A great stay home and rent movie... fun, fast, fantasy flick!
