Surprisingly good, 30 September 2000
Author: Davcat (davlons@hotmail.com) from Stevenage, England

Saw the video the other night, and was ready to shoot it down in flames - the scenario seemed so pathetic.

Surprise! -- it was actually pretty good! This was mostly due to the skills of Bob Hoskins, who is such a versatile actor, he is always believable.

Somewhat contrived, but if you can side-step this, then this is a very good, "just before bedtime" film. Worth watching.
