Visitor Comments

Tony Vain: Predictable and unbelievable storyline. Can you imagine being worked over by Mike Tyson and living to tell the tale?

John Cullen: After an exciting start, the film fizzles out into boring and predictable mediocrity. A bit of a pity.

Marianne Fourie: Disappointing for a Nicholas Cage film. Not his fault, though. Maybe stupid director.

Jacques Boshoff: Definitely not one of Cage's best. Very forgettable movie.

Debbie Zuber: I love Nicholas Cage in any movie and anyone else who thinks otherwise will have to answer to me because I personally think that he (Nicholas Cage) puts a lot of his time, effort and patience into making his movies.

Castor Troy: Nicholas is the main man, man.
