not a bad film
29 August 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was quite an ok film with a reasonable amount of suspense. The plot was pretty predictable though and the main character played by Richard Greico did get played for a bit of a sucker by his girlfriend. In the end you were left feeling sorry for him rather than hating him for what he and his girlfriend did.
