One of the best movies i've lately seen
21 July 2005 | by ckynetSee all my reviews

The movie contains a lot of surprises and a lot of stressful moments. One of the best seen lately on the TV. I recommend it to everyone =)) The actors were chosen well, too, I think. The idea of the movie is really interesting, I think... but the best is how it is presented - when i read a short description i thought this will be the usual American "thriller" with nothing interesting in it (like Boogeyman). But lately it turned out to be almost as good as one of the best movies in my scale, The Butterfly effect. O.K. Not that good, but for a TV movie - I give the 10 points and say that the movie is excellent. For some it may seem a bit too sweet... but i think it was OK cause the action was chosen very well. Thank you, authors, for such a nice film.
