This movie was very slow and unbelievable. The only reason I went to see it is because it was a free screening and one of my favorite actors, Andy Garcia, was in it. Basically, there were many problems with the film. When the little girl was in a coma and the doctor, played by Angela Bassett, sends her brother in to "bring her back", it was a bit far-fetched for the doctor to go in after them by way of hypnosis when the little girl was in a coma and the boy was perfectly healthy. Hmmm.....There were only a couple of spots where it got exciting. One was when the boy jumped into the sea because he was hallucinating about his sister and the other was when the boy got out of control in the hospital. The little boy was a phenomenal actor. I hope he gets more work.
