Tired and boring
17 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though this was made for TV, it still could have been directed with more enthusiasm for the actors used. The script and the direction looks and acts more like a high school senior play. There is no chemistry between Dillon and Lenny, although it appears as though the screen writer worked to provide it. Kyle does not have the darkness that the Sean character seems to need, and Lenny is not believable as the "brainy" kid. There are so many parts of this movie that did not work. It appears to have been written by someone that cut and pasted clichéd "cloak and dagger" subplots from other movies. Each scene is poorly directed, from the first meeting of Sean and Lenny, to the meeting between Sean and Altina Morales. None of the characters give you any reason to become interested in what happens to them. I guess the bottom line is that Kyle does not add any strength to this film. (not to mention having to do some stupid things--like follow the bad guy in daylight on an empty quiet neighborhood street in his black leather jacket which made him stand out like a sore thumb)
