A Must See! Stars James Marsden ( pre X-men )
9 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story builds around what would happen if someone planned a kidnapping in order to collect a ransom but the plan doesn't work. I thinks it was very well written and the actors that were chosen fit the characters perfectly. When I read who was starring in the movie and saw that James Marsden is in it I made a point to see it. I have liked watching his acting since I first saw him in "Boogies Diner" - 1994. Then when I watched the movie, I saw more of his better skills than just playing second bill to other well known actors. This movie really put him in the spot light. I think it was about time. Of course it was just a small step to what he is now known for as Scott Summers/Cyclops in The X-men movies. Congratulations to James for continuing to make his star shine bright.
