21 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Woman (Suzanna Love) involved in a terrible accident nearly dies, but an experimental surgery saves her life. She is given brain waves from a recently deceased woman who was murdered, but as Love starts to feel better she feels sudden urges to find the woman's killer and to bring him to justice. Handsome looking, glossy thriller is well directed and well cast right down the line, but predictable and unmemorable.

Rated R; Violence and Brief Nudity. Later edited to PG.
