  1. Becomes a very conventional suspense film, replete with virtually every cliche of the genre, some used more than once.
  2. I do wish Mr. Robbins's one-note co-stars had been worthy of his performance, and that some of the melodramatics hadn't been quite so slapdash.
  3. While Robbins has a good time playing the boyish devil, the rest of the principals transmit on an awfully low baud rate.
  4. An inferior factory product, cranked out with little care and less imagination, that seems all the dumber because it's pretending to be smart and topical.
  5. 30
    As a film, it essentially bites.
  6. 0
    Monumentally silly thriller.

    I show this film at the end of the school year to my classes after we talk about monopolies, Anti-trust laws, etc. It gives them a bit of a break at the end of year.
    Every year the high school kids love it, some of them even go and buy it. Haven't heard a complaint about it yet. Also, gotta love Claire Forlani, she is smoking hot in this movie.

Unfortunately, badly written. Conceptually it had the all the promise of an interesting and diverse plot but was held back by playing the safe road of dumbing it down to the lowest common denominator. Watchable but not highly entertaining. Expand

I was confused on who the characters were and which person was who. Towards the middle, the movie became more suspenseful and there was more action. Expand

What really made me mad was that Ryan Phillippe, Tim Robbins, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Claire Forlani are all great actors/actresses. The film was written horribly and was one of those movies where you think, "Wow, this movie COULD HAVE BEEN really good." But it wasn't, so I rate it a 1. Expand
