a very entertaining thriller
6 June 2001 | by (united states) – See all my reviews

everything was great about the movie. I guess if I had to choose how I could make it better, I would have someone else play the lead male role. he was ok. he looked liked he fit the part but his acting could have been more convincing. overall, its a great movie. I can't wait to go see it again with my friends when they show it in LA... are they going to show it in LA?
