Unsuspecting witness to an awful film
25 August 2002 | by BerneaudSee all my reviews

This in undoubtedly one of the worst films I saw recently. Everything looks cheap and rushed, especially the plot. Sean Young disappoints as the lead, looking lost and, probably, ashamed to be part of this. Tim Daly is a little better, but still not very good, considering his work on TV's "The Fugitive", for example. Things weren't good, but when we get to the ending it begins to look like a joke.

Sean Young slow-motion sprint left me speechless. How can someone sink so low?

Very bad indeed...
