Excellent Flick!
14 September 2000 | by g&afanSee all my reviews

Desire is a well put together thriller, with an excellent script, and outstanding acting. It holds interest and manages to engage the viewer with action, suspense and a little comedy thrown in for good measure. I highly recommend it!
