Excellent - ahead of its time
8 May 2003 | by GINNY BSee all my reviews

Admittedly, these comments are being submitted well after this movie was made and subsequently, I have had an opportunity to catch up on some of the technology alluded to in this film. However, at the time of its production, I had no idea that people could "steal" your identity, to say nothing of the havoc and terror which could be perpetrated against an innocent victim. Not being familiar with computers and the possibility and realization of "hackers" being out there, so this film was an eye-opener and a wakeup call for me. (And NO, I had not seen "The Net" prior to seeing The Twilight Man, so there was not point of reference or comparison for me, as another person commented upon.

I thought Tim Matheson was outstanding showing both a vulnerability at being a victim and as an extremely determined individual, digging deeply into his unknown past to identify and track the person responsible for destroying his life.

The Lieutenant was extremely good - not giving away her suspicions as to Jordan Coopers guilt or innocence, and, while checking out leads as they came in, not jumping the gun; rather waiting for more evidence as to not only the suspect, but as to whether the acts were even committed by another person as alleged by Mr. Cooper.

Though several years have passed since the film was made, the twists, turns and surprises still make it a strong film and one of my favorites.
