Missing lots of pieces indeed
30 August 2002 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It took me about three quarters of the movie to figure out where it aims. Is it a thriller, drama or ....? Since it is based on a novel, the story itself probably just doesn't add up.

The buzzword is pointless. Nothing new to learn, no interesting insight in human's psyche, no unorthodox behavior, no special effects worth mentioning, no twists and turns we haven't seen a zillion times before. Coburn is flat as the father, and his son resembles a doped dimwit from the cuckoo's nest. His girlfriend is convincing as a banana imitating a strawberry. Can you say 'flat characters'?

Don't watch it, it is a waste of time.
