This movie is a treat to watch if you like movies where people can exhibit eccentric intellect. The movie guides us by combining thrilling plot twists and fast-paced action. At times, you wont know what hit you.
I saw this movie ages ago when it came out in '99, and must tell you that watching it again now is like watching it for the first time again, there's lots going on and we get moments of rest when Simon is guiding us.
Overall I'd recommend this movie for your criticism or entertainment. Enjoy! ;)
