User Reviews

Blah .....
2 December 2002 | by mgulevSee all my reviews

The story is mildly interesting, the acting pretty good, the props are bad and the special effects likewise. What really steals the movie is the ending. Steals away from a good review, that is! The set-up is just too long. When you already know what the movie is about from the title and a few clues from the movie, it is just agony to watch the actors stumble blindly through the movie. At least Christopher and Rachel do a good job. A little more money and a story that was more believable would make the movie watchable, but the ending ruins any hope anyway, so just give it a miss.
