A must-see movie
29 July 2001 | by headshot69See all my reviews

This is a fantastic movie with action, suspense, and plot twists to satisfy the most discerning movie critic.

I won't disclose the plot or storyline, but this is a great match for any of the Hollywood movies of the same genre.

It is long, but the time goes quickly and you are left with a feeling of time well spent!
