When two guys go to war
9 October 2002 | by derekparrySee all my reviews

Extremely cliched psychological thriller but that is more of an observation than a criticism as this movie serves up more than enough tension and nailbiting moments. If you can get your head around Richard Thomas playing the bad guy (but still with the boy next door appearance) then you should get a certain level of enjoyment from this movie even if you can predict pretty much the whole plot.
