Disappointing! Could have been done a lot better!
4 October 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I watched this film, because I knew there were only three actors in it. That seemed very special to me. The story also seemed quite interesting to me. Not that the story is original, but you can make very good movies out of stories like that. But I was disappointed when I saw it. The direction was not that good and the acting of Lou Diamond Philips was not so good and sometimes a bit irritating. Luckily there are Charles Dance and Mia Sara, that do quite well. The film is quite exciting, but when it nears the end it deteriorates. If the budget would have been bigger, they could have done the cinematography much better and then this would be a much better film. The end could also have been done a little better. A missed opportunity.
