Nice entertaining two hours
12 July 2004 | by (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

Nothing wrong with this movie, but nothing particularly special about it either. It was a nice little drama, with some action, comedy and scary stuff added in for spice.

It is all about one man's struggle to try and get what he really wants out of life (quit his job he hates, getting the pretty girl, etc), but never does. So his doppelganger (not necessarily evil, more like the person he always wanted to be, but was afraid of becoming) comes along and does it for him.

Great acting, direction (great split screen usage), and an alright plot line keep you interested and entertained. Well worth seeing.

6/10
