very captivating
23 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

An excellent movie! It kept me and my girlfriend at the edge of our seats - it was soooo intense and with so many interesting unexpected twists. It was well worth ditching my last two classes! It's a kind of movie that you want to see in a movie theater since the sound is so intense. Oh, and the lead actress is HOT! The kind of hot that you don't ever see in movies.
