worth watching
14 June 2002 | by (trenton, nj) – See all my reviews

this movie isnt gonna win any awards, but it is worth watching simply because david morse is one of the more underrated and underappreciated actors working today. The movie has some good direction from roger spottiswoode and a screenplay above the usual tv movie fare. Marg helgenberg, of CSI fame, is also decent, and easy on the eyes. But Morse is the drawing point
