User Reviews

Some mediocre, some incredible
14 July 2000 | by thedoctor98See all my reviews

Some "amazing stories" were actually just rehashes of old ideas, but some, such as "The Mission", were superbly written, directed, and are worth seeking out. To add to their appeal, some top-notch actors are involved to bring an extra dimension to the story. Worth seeing.
