9 September 2001 | by npcentralSee all my reviews

The supporting character referred above who disappears is played by Kim Darby, and there is a logical reason for her disappearance. It's established she knows the area better than the others and ditches them when the bad guys show up. The film is fast-paced, and it's hard to keep up at times. It's not a great movie by any means, but Darby provides a lot of humor, as does Noelle Parker.
