An A+ movie, thriller and suspenseful
24 August 2002 | by benz5starzSee all my reviews

This movie was an A+ as well as a very good suspenseful thriller. I recommend thins movie to anyone ! I feel that all of the actors were perfect for the parts. The deleted scenes on the dvd filled in some of the missing parts that might have made more sense to the plot when watching the movie.
