Enjoyment level - Up and Down
16 October 2001 | by (Hertfordshire, England) – See all my reviews

Incase you don't know what is about, then it is about a married couple and their best friend. It is not a love triangle as such, but a drama of emotions, played out to the setting of injuries, police officers and ice hockey.

The film is good in part and poor at times. The anger I feel when people behave irrationally, but you have to convince yourself that people may react in that way. Still I will not point out exactly which bits I am referring to, you can enjoy that for yourself.

At the half hour point I was beginning to get quite annoyed with this film, but it did improve near to the end. I did find that some emotional content that was enjoyable to watch play out. Many people will find this movie dull and uninteresting. This is by no means brilliant or ground breaking, but it does have value if you ask me. 5/10... ooh I'm harsh.
