This One'll Wow 'Ya
6 December 2002 | by jennie0409See all my reviews

This movie is great! It is such a heartbreaking-turned-heartwarming film. At the end, you, the viewer, say to yourself, "Okay, this movie is 2 hours long...you guys have five minutes to wrap it up. Okay....how is this going to be finished in four minutes? ... All right, this ending is going to be pretty abrupt, since they only have 3 minutes to go." But it's anything but that! The ending is short, but so incredible. (I'm not saying it's a happy ending, but I'm not saying it's a bad one either. You'll just have to watch and see.) It's absolutely unbelievable to me, that something like this (the subject of the film) could actually ever happen. I guess that's why it's shown on Lifetime TV. But unlike some other Lifetime movies, well, maybe MOST Lifetime movies, this movie doesn't fall hard on the police. Too many movies show how little the police do; how terrible they are. Sometimes this is the case. But I think that police do a lot of good, and sometimes there's only so much they can do. I like the fact that this movie doesn't focus on the police, but on the people to whom these things are happening to. Speaking of which, the casting directors did a great job in picking just the right actors and actresses for this film. They fit their parts and do a fantastic job. The four children focused on, are absolutely adorable, and great actors. This movie is wonderful, and I truly suggest any movie-lover check this one out. You won't be disappointed.
