This damn thing was good
4 November 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I was totally blown away by this movie. I guess mostly because I thought it was going to be another "Oh let's all feel sorry for this poor troubled boy" flick, but damn this thing was much better than that. Some of those scenes were intense. Any movie that can make me squirm in my seat deserves a "thumbs up."
