Visitor Comments
Bruce Humphrey: I was most pleasantly surprised! A violent/action/thriller with a touch of humanity. Excellent acting and photography. The movie has many surprises and some really original special effects and action sequences. Highly recommended if you like this kind of movie.

Robert Haynes: I agree almost verbatim with Shaun's review of this one...Ho hum...been there...etc etc and when will studios learn that Andy Garcia (if you'll pardon my French) is not a leading man's arse...

Andre Jansen & Coreen Cook: Good action thriller ........... has a very open ending to the movie .......... it doesn't realy end !!!

Gerald Forbes: The settings create a claustrophobic atmosphere. A bit too far fetched and too much male ego on show.
