terrible editing! you can see numerous scenes where the editing is poorly done and the actor they used as the kidnapper is awful.

there's no way that you should seriously watch this movie unless you have nothing else to do or you are being forced to watch it as a sign of torture.

It's just not a very good movie at all. poor writing and poor film editing really make this a sub par quality movie.

Just avoid the pain of having to sit through this movie!

perhaps if they were to replace the actor with someone who actually knows how to act and improve the editing quality of this film it might be worth watching on TV. don't buy the DVD as you are wasting your money.
