During sentencing, the judge tells Vivian "the State of Massachusetts has declared you insane," thus making him ineligible for the death penalty. In legal parlance, Massachusetts is always referred to as a Commonwealth, and does not practice the death penalty. See more »

The first hour or so of this movie is great. It is interesting, good-viewing and imaginative.
It's a pity that after the hour mark the film looses so much effectiveness as it becomes ordinary and predictable. It's a shame that a little of the imagination shown in the first part of the film was not evident towards the end.
The film is 8/10 for the first hour, 5/10 for the rest. I feel it deserves 6/10 in total.
