Only Theoretically Good
5 June 2004 | by kahn_joanna1983See all my reviews

This film has a lot of potential, however fails to impress due to the poorly written script.

Scenes are very drawn out, and so there is an extremely minute degree of suspense in the whole movie. It is obvious what Jodi is going to do to each victim by the middle of the film.

The mystery of the child's past is not drawn upon to develop a stronger background to the character of Jodi. Unfortunately, this doesn't give the child actor much to work with, and thus, the protagonists' performance is extremely wooden.

The supporting actors have so little to work with with regards to material, that the whole thing falls apart because of the lack of backbone in direction.

To the actors' credits, for an obscenely banal script, their performances were good.
