Great film, 17 December 2008
Author: ancients1 from Ireland

i watched this and OMG a great movie, a great ending. A sublime movie within a movie after you see it once and the ending you have to watch it again, the first time you see it tells you a whole new movie now that you know, you watch it again and see it from a different perspective.

is a bit slow to start of and there is no action like most Hollywood dumps that are coming out, but if you want to see a great story this film will entertain you.

Hollywood should do more like this VION- Virtual Internet Online Navagitor
