User Reviews

This really was grave!
10 July 2002 | by (Bedfordshire,England) – See all my reviews

I'snt it funny how people who use IMDB tend to take notice other User comments especially if most of them are good....well not any more. This film was pure tripe. After reading the reviews i was expecting a good little film with a superb twist but i got 80 minutes of C Movie and an ending that i didnt understand at all. The story is told by someone in prison who we dont get to see until the very end and when we do get to see the person it is supposed to be the twist to the movie. WHO WAS IT?????????????????????? I didnt even recognise the person ! After watching an hour and a half of twaddle and only watching it all because of the so called good twist i was left annoyed at a confusing ending. It just goes to show dont always listen to IMDB user comments...except for mine of course! 3 out of 10.
