When a so called lovable little girl is involved in a suspense story,what do you expect? Certainly not the unexpected! You can see in her eyes that the villains will not get the upper hand.The more helpless she seems ,the stronger she is when danger comes around.Dumb but not dumb! The supporting cast is wasted:William Hurt is cast as the father and all he has to do is wait ;Jennifer Tilly 's part is not much more exciting:all she's got to do is bemoan over her unfortunate daughter's fate.You will guess who pulls the string as soon as that villain appears on the screen.
Only the first scenes in the hotel can ,at a pinch,generate some suspense.But after that,it's downhill.The worst is that horrible "singer" ,pedophile at that!On the other hand ,Dennis Leary's junkie is quite nice.
Get "Amsterdamned" instead!
