Worth the $2.50
23 December 2001 | by (Claremont) – See all my reviews

The most likely straight to video release was pretty good. Don't let the B movie tag line detour you this is a decent thriller with some good acting from Olmos and very sexy Charlize Theron. Not Oscar worth but not a piece of trash.
