Not worth the effort
10 April 2002 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

Really a disappointing movie with a very shallow script. Nevertheless, Lamas performs reasonably well as the caring, supportive son. He shows us that his acting prowess extends to beyond the stereotyped gung-ho "Rambo" hero that we've come to associate with him. In this particular movie, wearing a pair of spectacles, however, was a bit over-the-top in an effort to portray a fragile character. His incessant fiddling with them was quite irritating. In hindsight, the movie was hardly engaging, and quite predictable towards its climax. The mood and scenes are also generally a bit on the somber side, even gruesome in one instance. My advice: steer clear of this one in your local video store.
