Fascinating story
5 September 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A good friend of mine advised me to watch this movie, so I did after he pushed me a lot.

It's a fascinating story to watch and while watching the tension increased and it kept me sitting at the edge of my seat till the end. And the fact that this movie is based on a true story, makes it even more fascinating.

The acting in this movie has been done wonderfully, as expected from Cuba Gooding Jr.

Normally I don't watch these kind of movies, but I'm glad I watched this movie. As for anyone else who doubts about this movie, don't. Just watch it, it will be worth it!
