Not bad
28 December 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Another run of the mill daytime one this, not much to say on it. Plenty of suspense, you're never too sure where the plot is heading (which is a good and bad thing). The core parts of the story you can peg in the first twenty minutes & it takes too long to get to the end. The actress playing Maggie puts in a top performance, though with some clichéd parts to her role (opening the front door at night, picking up the mail without shutting it). The villain Jack (Snr) was underused & the ending a bit of a rush-job with ends left untied. Some odd characters make up the rest of the film,though may be realistic for that part of the world

  • which incidentallyis something else in the films favour - some


awesome scenery & backdrops.

Worth a watch, underrated at 5/10 but fairly predictable & slightly long.
