Drop dead boring!!
18 January 2004 | by (Cambridgeshire, uk) – See all my reviews

This film made me feel travel sick from the start. I was expecting horror, gore and action i got neither!! The story only covered about 4 days of his life and hardly featured anything of any real importance at all it didn't give any background on him and it didn't show any detective work in detail.

Waste of my time!!
