For a low budget flick it works well and the acting is superb, especially the kid, top little actor, I expect to see more from this dude.
The plot all be it simple is effective and pretty much the entire movie transpires in echo park. The romance sub-plot works well and didn't feel like it was just thrown in their and overall was a good movie with some tense parts throughout and a great ending.
I recommend it to Val Kilmers fans and anyone else for that matter.
By no means a Hollywood blockbuster but taking into account a tiny budget, linear setting and some good acting...
I give it 8/10 Well worth a look.
