Goofs

The current Hospital where Will works is said to be Astoria Memorial Hospital in "downtown" Portland (Oregon). But when Joe reads Abby's prescription bottle it plainly shows the Astoria Memorial Hospital address as 3297 Cedar St. in the city of Astoria, Oregon with the actual Astoria's correct zip code 97103 and area code of 503. The real hospital in Astoria is Columbia Memorial on Exchange St. See more »

Good thriller with some banal dialogue
21 September 2002 | by brendonmSee all my reviews

It's unfortunate that Columbia/Sony is not pushing this movie -- there's some convincing acting here (Theron does the woman-in-jeopardy thing well; doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes too!) and three different storylines interwoven by the writer quite nicely. Some good setups and payoffs as well (though one involving the waggling of a plane's wings is kinda corny, but it worked). My only criticism is that some of the dialogue is predictable (the bad guys says exactly what we expect him to say in certain scenes). Courtney Love plays a white trash wench pretty well, but that's not surprising given her vagabond background.

BOTTOMLINE: If you like thrillers, go see this on a matinee -- worth seeing on the big screen for some beautiful cinematography of the Pacific Northwest and the climax. IMHO a big step above ALONG CAME A SPIDER and HIGH CRIMES. I haven't seen Mandoki's other flicks, but I plan to rent them now. I just hope Charlize Theron chooses some more challenging dramatic roles, or her career will probably suffer for it.
