slow
16 March 2002 | by (pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

saw the description: "filmed in beatiful mountains of Oaxaca". But one hardly sees any outdoor scenery. The takes were slow. Too lengthy. Hardly anything happens for 40 minutes at the mid-point. Had to get a fix for my ADD to wash off my annoyance, and rented a fast-action thriller video later.
