I tried - I really did
16 May 1999 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

Short of Lang's performance, I could not sit through this film. Lighting, direction, and overall production were horrible, and the story was not developed in a timely fashion. The only saving grace was the lead, who it appeared had little to work with. My call - 1/2 star
