Gaeta Shines - Movie Doesn't
2 September 2002 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

Pasquale Gaeta is the highlight of this film. He is a character actor that should be getting far more work. He is better than this film, unfortunately. The concept is okay, and, of course, with the budget constraints of this film, the end product really is not bad. But it drags. It is slow. It lacks driving conflict. It has moments that are good (and, truth be told, it is a better film than movies made with 100 times the budget), but it feels more like a student film than a professional project. Gaeta, though, is worth seeing.
