Full of suspense
4 March 2001 | by QTPie3334See all my reviews

I just saw this movie on tv, and I must admit, it was much better than I thought it would be. In the past, I have not been a huge fan of Pierce Brosnin, but he was really good in this movie. He played a much different character from the action movies I remember him for. It was a nice change. The movie grabbed your attention and kept you wondering how it would all play out in the end. It was one of the best TV movies I have seen. I highly reccomend this movie!
