Alyssa Milano said she was surprised by the way Ice-T reacted on the shooting scene, explaining most actors would have done it differently. When she confronted him, he responded that shooting scenes in real life are like that. See more »

I did not find the supposed plot twist in this movie a twist at all. I figured out who the bad guys were very early on in the movie. The only thing I was uncertain about was whether the character was actually the culprit or whether the acting was just inappropriate and made him/her look like the bad guy; it turns out the acting was quite appropriate. Anyway, I found this movie very obvious and unthrilling, and Susanne's (I was very impressed to see they spelled her name the same way as mine, as it is a rare spelling- bonus points) reluctance to use violence even when her own life was on the line was kind of frustrating. Still, most of the acting was decent, especially considering some of the stupid things people had to say or do. Uncle Whoever's confession was extremely melodramatic and did not seem to have much relevance to the story, unless I missed something. Basically this movie was an unsuspenseful suspense and I do not recommend it to anyone except to the many Alyssa Milano fans out there.
