Lewis believes that he is the only person who can stop the killer before time runs out for his next victim. Written by

I so wanted this to be an enjoyable movie with Cuba Gooding Jr.
Not the case.
Although occasionally believable, on a whole the acting was way beyond par. The storyline, although showing some potential, was far from well executed.
I'm sure this made for a good movie if you'd just skimmed through the script. And with a lot more effort, I'm sure this could have been an excellent movie. But as it stands, disappointing performances across the board.
Don't waste your time, this movie deserves it straight-to-DVD status.
