Don't underestimate this movie.
25 February 2002 | by halfcolombianSee all my reviews

I actually liked this movie although the other reviewers on here seems to hate it. It's a very interesting story on many levels, is john savages character really ill or is he being framed? Will he be able to get out of that hell-hole? Is he imagining the things he sees? What if this hadn't been a low budget tv-movie?, with a bigger budget, some editing here and there and some bigger stars perhaps? (except savage and mcdowell which are good in this movie) then this movie could be a masterpiece since the story is very interesting. The story reminded me a bit of "the fugitive" although this is a totally different movie. I liked the ending although it's very sad.
