Caught this on the UK Sci-Fi channel over two nights and I really enjoyed it. Billy Zane is excellent and playing a more mature and vulnerable character than usual, a very convincing family man. The little girl '21-21' really reminded me of my own daughter so I had a lump in my throat at the end (if you aren't a 'daddy' you won't understand!). The Yates character was certainly over-the-top, but still (just) believable, as he got more and more frustrated in the chase and let's face it, he got all the best lines. I love science-fantasy material rather than horror, and although I haven't read the book, I will be keeping an eye out for it. A first-rate TV mini-series.
