Quotes

Duncan: [sighs] It's nice to see you, Kitty.
[pause]
Duncan: Now we haven't spoken for a while. How was your day?
[Kitty shrugs]
Duncan: [speaking as if he were Kitty] It was fine, Duncan. I mean it was just like yesterday and the day before that. So, slowly I work up the courage to run away, but I never get quite enough courage to run really far away. And then someone is sent, and I'm brought back, and I'm noticed by the boss, but it's only to punish me for running away because how does that reflect on him?

Surprisingly Good
15 March 2001 | by (Neverland) – See all my reviews

I picked up "Montana" on a whim, and was very plesantly surprised by it.

I'll concede that there were some holes in the story, and some of the characters were very flat, but Claire and Nick made a VERY interesting study.

There were enough plot twists that I didn't forsee to keep me surprised, and the main characters were definitely engaging enough to keep my interest.

However, the violence and carnage were definitely worse than was necessary (comparisons to Tarantino seem justified).

I'd give it a 8 - not great, but interesting and engaging.
