A good effort
4 October 1999 | by (Launceston,Tasmania,Australia) – See all my reviews

This is quite a good movie.The plot was realistic and the acting was up to standard from a professional cast.It was probably made with next years Olympics in mind,as the location is Sydney which shows that City as a beautiful place to be in (not quite true). I would have given this 6/10,but have added an extra point as the star of the movie..Amanda Douge is gorgeous.Well worth a viewing.
