Awesome Movie
5 December 2004 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

This movie was really good. Lori Petty is the reason this film almost gets a perfect score. She is a good actress who's very underrated, and deserves more spots in movies. Well anyway the movie was full of suspense, surprises, and danger. It kept me wondering," what will happen next." I was also surprised at some of the actions of the villain (Jason London). This movie was really good, and it's worth a rental for someone who wants a movie that's full of suspense, and action. I was surprised that there wasn't much drama in the movie expect for a couple of scenes. Some of the scenes were a little sad and heartbreaking. It was mostly action though. It was still one of the best movies I have ever seen.

9.5/10
