Worth watching
22 March 2001 | by heedarmySee all my reviews

Nothing particularly original but this is a well-made little thriller with a tough performance by Linda Kozlowski in the lead role. Refreshingly, her character handles most of the action herself without needing to be rescued by the male lead.
