interesting movie
20 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

I liked the movie, but was terribly disappointed in the ending.

The premise of the film was good, but has been done quite a bit. Some of the plot twists were very good...and a few really threw me. There was enough suspense to definitely keep me interested.

It was an interesting twist on a concept that I previously felt had been overdone. The writer made this part work. The "bad guy" was underacted yet overdone by the dialog. A rock could have delivered that performance. The lead actor was quite good, however, and made this film worth my 7 out of 10 rating. I'd like to see more of his films.

I probably wouldn't purchase the movie, but I would watch it again if it was on.
