Not bad but overlong and rambling.
17 December 1999 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

For a movie that was never released theatrically, this turned out to be a better-than-expected little thriller, but still not good enough to get a wholehearted recommendation. The first half is the most intriguing, because it has an air of unpredictability and you don't know where the story will take you. But the second half eventually gets rather boring. Rick Rossovich, with his goofy smile and his ordinariness, is a likable hero, but the film is marred by overlength, and by the rambling script.
