It's Not Terrible
7 May 2008 | by Scars_RemainSee all my reviews

The reason I may have enjoyed this film is because I had extremely low expectations when I decided to sit down and watch it. I liked the idea of it and enjoyed parts of it but ultimately it is a very poorly executed wannabe thriller with so many clichés that it's almost sad. It's a good time if you turn your brain off so don't expect anything too intelligent at all.

The acting isn't terrible, I've definitely seen worse and Rachael Leigh Cook is definitely easy on the eyes but there are better actors out there for sure. The story was definitely a good idea but it was executed very badly and in the end, it fell flat for me. I wanted it to work and I wanted to love it but it was nothing more than an okay film for a rainy day.

I really have nothing more to say about this one. See it if you want, but if you decide not to, you really won't miss much.
