The film appears at its beginning to be a hack potboiler, but as the action proceeds, the intelligence of the script pokes through, and the viewer gets hooked. The cast is uniformly good, and few of the characters are unidimensional. There is a little bit of a problem with a deus ex machina device at the end, but overall I would give the writer and director pretty high marks. This is certainly worth renting or watching on cable.
