Okay, people: when you went to the theater or rented or bought the VHS or DVD, JUST WHAT WERE YOU EXPECTING? This is a pure out and out two bag popcorn, one gigantic Coca cola thrill ride of a movie. It starts out with a bang and doesn't let up. You want great stories, try THE HOURS; you want overwhelmingly good acting, try MYSTIC RIVER. You want a fun, oh my god,look out thriller, this is one of the best. Nuff said.
