Unexpected and masterful.
19 March 2002 | by chac6292See all my reviews

The change in direction in story makes the title so significant. The characters are well fleshed out and you give genuine concern to them and their lives. The inclusion of 2 groups of criminals keep the motion reeling to either side. Those who are educated in storytelling can truly appreciate how complete this film is. Nothing is contrived and everything makes sense. Especially the ending when we are informed to expect the unexpected and the ending is completely unexpected. A great film.
