Thought it was well-written
31 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie enough to buy it. I am not sure why other people see it as being such a terrible movie and screenplay.

I don't even like Stephen Baldwin, I should say that I am a huge Alec fan, but I thought he pulled this one off in some strange way. Sadie Frost was weak at times, but it wasn't really her sort of role to begin with. She is the reason I give this movie 9 stars instead of 10 stars. Pete P. was awesome as always. The script seemed fine to me. It has holes, but few don't. I am a writer, and have been working on a script of my own. Writing scripts has proved more difficult than writing the novel I have been working on.

The movie has its flaws, but few movies are flawless. It was enjoyable, entertaining, and I would recommend it to people who haven't seen it. Just my opinion.
