I loved it...
7 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the Directing and Cinematography were excellent... The script was very well thought out and written.... The acting was so professional and spot on for each of the characters.. I give it 2 thumbs UP.. So GOOD... It was a tough shoot as we made every shot and performance perfect.. I would work with this Director, DOP, and Operator any time.. The crew were pro's.. The actors were pro's.. Everyone gave it there heart and soul each and every day.. Great directing... The suspense and thriller of it make your mind wonder and it gets you right into the movie.. The movie flows so well and flawless..
