Goofs

Near the beginning when Toshio is sending a fax he places the pages in the machine face up, yet as the page moves through the machine we can see the logo which clearly shows this machine expects pages to be placed face down. The fax is later shown being read by Simon and has been correctly received. See more »

interesting movie
20 May 2005 | by catherine-bSee all my reviews

I liked the movie, but was terribly disappointed in the ending.

The premise of the film was good, but has been done quite a bit. Some of the plot twists were very good...and a few really threw me. There was enough suspense to definitely keep me interested.

It was an interesting twist on a concept that I previously felt had been overdone. The writer made this part work. The "bad guy" was underacted yet overdone by the dialog. A rock could have delivered that performance. The lead actor was quite good, however, and made this film worth my 7 out of 10 rating. I'd like to see more of his films.

I probably wouldn't purchase the movie, but I would watch it again if it was on.
