Did You Know?

Goofs:
Plot holes: The police are able to obtain a sketch of the killer, and the storekeeper confirms that it was who attacked her, but the killer's face is always covered except the eyes. In particular, the bus driver, who gave the description for the sketch, only saw the killer briefly, from a distance and a side angle. There is no way he could have given an accurate description.See more »

A watchable suspense yarn, 28 July 2001
Author: warp96 from San Diego

I liked this movie overall, with its strengths being the cohesive plot, a mystery that continued to the denouement, decent performances by the actors, and real-life subplots in the background. However, no acting awards are expected for anyone here, and the musical score was nothing special. Also, I appreciated how the storyline made one think and stay focussed to keep track of how the criminal investigation proceeded. I actually felt like I was following around these detectives on the case and able to understand their thought processes as more clues were obtained. 7 out of 10.
