Not fit for intelligent human consumption.
11 October 2002 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

The only thing worth watching about this movie is Kimberley Davies, and that's just looking at her, not her acting (she can't act - but then again, that only puts her on par with the rest of the cast of this shocker).

Mmm. Should have given it 1/10 instead of 2. Certainly the special effects aren't even worth that.

Read a good book, watch something else, eg. flies crawling up the wall, or maybe grass growing, or photos of Kimberley, or some of the wonderful non-action-genre movies that have come out of Australia in the last twenty years.

One day Australians will realise that they make great intelligent movies without trying to match Hollywood for action blockbusters which they will never be able to do. Until then we are stuck with these occasional misguided unsuccessful forays.

Contemplating this movie's showing on overseas TV networks makes me cringe as an Australian.

Don't bother with this one.
