A thriller with hidden depths
3 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

When you start something, finish it. That is the mantra spoken often in this movie. While the story starts slow, it builds towards an exciting end. The characters, both major and minor, are well drawn, complete with personality quirks, that add depth and interest to the story. Alexis Denisof, in his film debut, does a great job portraying Tony's innocent exuberance, and determination to start what he has finished. This film gets better every time I watch it.
