SunChaser is a good movie about hope
25 April 1999 | by Sunny-22See all my reviews

SunChaser is a kind of movie you like or you dislike. Its about a criminal boy who has nothing to lose because he will die in a few weeks. So he kidnaps his doctor to find an Indian cure. This doctor realizes that his life is at a point that he has everything to lose but his soul. So he has to find a cure as well.

I really loved Sunchaser. The atmosphere off the story breaths hope. It is not to late to learn to live untill your last breath. So if you have 2 hours to spare, and you don't want to rent an Adam Sandler or Jerry Bruckheimer video, rent this one. You won't be disappointed.
