Ripley's movie review

Corazza was terrible, Boyd was mediocre, Taylor was slightly annoying, Allison was great. Ruptash was all of the above, depending on the scene.

The movie wasn't particularly good, although there were moments of near brilliance, but I kinda got caught up in the story and had to see how it turned out. Even though I knew how it was going to turn out. Which I suppose makes no sense. Ah well.

I would love to see the play that this is based on. I suspect that it would succeed in all of the places that the movie failed.
