A surprisingly wonderful film
21 June 2000 | by foilerneSee all my reviews

I just got this movie on pay per view, I was so bored, I just wanted to watch anything. To my surprise, this was a fantastic film!! Everyone in it was great, and I was fully involved in it the whole time. Some of the best movies ever made, are the ones that never get recognized. This fits just right in that category. See this movie, even if it does not look good. It was amazingly under rated, and I think it deserves more. Great film, great acting, the whole thing was an awesome experience!
