oldie but quite goodie
30 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie starts off with an interesting premise. Its a sort of mystery, crime drama( Why would a man agree to be bumped of on time payment??). You wonder how its going to sort itself out. I found the acting a bit stilted. Overall quite watchable.
