A DRAB AND DISMAL FILM
17 October 2000 | by rsoonsaSee all my reviews

This thing is a failed attempt to create an atmosphere of suspense relating to an abduction for sexual purposes of a fashion model. Unfortunately, it is difficult to care a good deal about what happens to the model, played limply by Jessica Alba, whose sole expression seems related to a struggle with constipation. The script is somewhat incoherent and lacking in focus, although poor editing can't have helped. As example, the title of the film is made a non-sequiter from the goings-on. Kevin Whately performs well in his wan part; the other players struggle with the scenario. John Duigan has directed far better; the occasional attempts at humor are best left unacknowledged.
