An entertaining movie
7 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a good entertaining movie with some excellent suspense moments. The three child actors & actresses did give a very appreciable performance. However the film could have been made a bit more gripping and at times it seemed that the plot was too simplified to save the children from being driven into greater trouble. However, a good film to see and enjoy.
