Goofs

(at around 30 mins) After the scene where Matt and a Chris have a beer, Matt meets Ann as a thunderstorm brews in the distance over the water. She apologizes for the previous night when Matt witness Chris abusing her says that he must me mad and draws near him. Just after Matt playfully touches her face you can see that he says something that was edited out. Her reaction after a camera change is a slight laugh, which confirms he said something. It appears as though he says "That's right" after she says "You must really be mad at me." See more »

a DVD-production
18 May 2007 | by MarkSee all my reviews

This should have gone straight to DVD. Perhaps it did(?)

It has the look - for the most part it's full of close ups and the camera work is full of fast and slow movements for no obvious reason - all of that will look terrible on the big screen but is pretty much standard for TV. And since there are so many close ups, neither achieves the punch that a more restrained use would provide - and at the same time the film doesn't have to show the lack of production values.

The plot is too predictable and the suspense consists mostly of eerie music that we recognize from countless TV productions also - it does not work.

Only for die-hard fans of the always reliable Denzel Washington.
