Pretty Good Thriller
18 April 2003 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

I have to admit, I had second thoughts after renting this one, but I said what the hell. I was really surprised at how this movie turned out. The drama picked up really early on, and didn't let up at all until the very end. You don't have to sit through a bunch of love scenes or stupid s**t like that, just jumps right into the action. Yeah, some might call this a "girl power" movie, but who's complaining? Nothing wrong with that to me. Some of LoriBeth's actions I question, being in that situation, but hey, it's a movie for crying out loud!! Really good flick.
