It was an enjoyable movie.
21 August 1999 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I first rented Past Perfect because I had heard of Mark Hildreth before. After seeing it for the first time I couldn't get enough of it. I thought that the plot was great. I really loved the combination of a sci-fi/action movie. It's a movie I enjoy watching over and over again.
