Kristian Ayre's best work yet!
11 September 2000 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

I have been waiting to see this movie for over two years, since I heard about it in July of 1998. When I finally got a copied tape of it from a friend, it was certainly worth it. It was two years of torture, but again, it was worth the wait. I know it hasn't come to the States (and might never will), but I was lucky to see this and I can watch it over and over again.

I post this comment because I am a HUGE fan of Kristian Ayre, who plays the main character, Matt "Spider" Strilecki. He is absolutely fantastic in this role, and of course, I can't imagine someone besides him playing Matt. Most people know Kristian as Radu on "Space Cases", which also showed excellent and might I add magnificant acting skills from him. Radu is just a tip of an iceberg, while Matt Strilecki really showed me everything. The rest of the cast is good too, such as Claudia Christian, Caroline Dhavernas, and Andreas Angbreias, and Alex MacArthur. But this (as well as "Space Cases", mind you!) is one of Kristian Ayre's best works. I applaud his performance, and I'd also give it a standing ovation. I've seen this over 10 times, and I'm not sick of it yet. He is simply divine.

Even though it was Canadian, I'm American, and I love it. It really could be worth waiting two years for. It's so amazing.
