From about 10 to 14, I probably saw this half a dozen times and ate it up.
This is a very 2002-feeling film, but everyone involved manages to make just enough intelligent decisions to keep it from feeling cheap or lame.
The fuller frame aspect ratio and general cinematography have a bit of a TV movie feel, and compositions are just OK, but there's such a nice economy of visual information that these aren't major issues.
The same can largely be said of the script, which features relatively rushed and haphazard storytelling and occasionally offers lines that are kinda weak, but evades the impact of these negatives with editing and performances that dodge or elevate.
Oddly, the least impressive performance…
