Good plot and suspenseful but a let-down...
9 February 2005 | by aimeeyoungSee all my reviews

When the movie began and the names of the cast came up on screen, I was amazed that with several well known actors and actresses that this was a straight-to-video release. The movie had a pretty good plot and was fairly suspenseful. There were also a couple of twists that I didn't see coming. The acting could have been better, especially from Cary Elwes, who gave a totally disappointing performance in 'Saw'. We watched 'Saw' in theaters and myself and several others in the theater were actually in tears from laughing at him by the end of the movie. But I digress. His character Albert Bodine was too over-the-top with the English accent and mannerisms to be believable and several parts of this movie actually had me shaking my head in disbelief and with embarrassment for him. The whole film was a guessing game, however, up until the very end. You really don't know who the culprit is, and I suppose you aren't supposed to find out. The ending stank, in my opinion. Definitely wouldn't have paid to see this in the theater and probably could have spent my money better on something else rather than renting it.
