User Review

Solid movie

Rating: 7/10

Saw this yesterday, knew absolutely nothing about it beforehand so no preconceptions. Also I have never watched either Lost or Prison Break so hadn't a clue who the leads were, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by it.

Solid acting, (the kid doesn't come across as a precocious brat, and the leads don't do too much chewing of scenery) a good story that is well paced, and despite the obvious Omen parallels, it was pretty original all the same. I was a bit surprised to see that it never really got a break at the box office, it deserves better.

It also reminded me of another film that I caught a few years ago, again I knew nothing about it beforehand and it turned out to be pretty good, the pic was Frailty (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0264616/,) which I'd recommend to anyone who liked Whisper...
