Very Good
20 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gave this one a 6/10 because of the twists involved. It was a very enjoyable movie, moved along very well, the actors were very good.

With all of the trash out on the market now days, its nice to see a good drama that catches your attention and keeps it.

I am not much for drama, but this is one I would recommend. I feel it will be one of the best missed movies of 2009.

Johnathon Schaech is riveting in this role.

I know that most of the critics will give this one a low score just because there are no big names in it, but don't let that miss-lead you... This is a good movie to watch, not a waste of time or money.
