Pretty bad stuff
4 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This started out as another one of those weird movies about a damsel in distress. It is very similar to Scissors with Sharon Stone. In fact, it's almost identical.

Nevertheless, the story is too long, you don't really care about the main character, and the ending is so formulaic, you can see it coming from the opening credits.

Too bad, because Eleniak is a good actress.
