5 out of 11 people found the following review useful.
6 points out of 10., 29 November 2003
Author: jinno from New York

Why does this movie includes SINGER'S PROMOTION VIDEO? Without Music Video Clips, I could have given 8 points instead of 6.

This Music Video kills tension without fail. Good acting, good story lines...then, suddenly STUPID (Lack of better words) Music Video cuts in.

Last scene should have been eliminated. The Shining Princess image was totally killed by this last scene. Besides make-up was cheap, thus, reality was totally killed.

Possibly Production needed money? Thus, Singer's promotion Video entered? It should have been released as Video Movie or TV special. It is really an insult to all actors. What a shame!!!
