This movie had been bigged up to me no end, and having seen the first 20 minutes of the sequel (which was fantastic) I thought surely the original would be even better. After the opening the movie became more and more disappointing for me. It descended into a boring, clueless, made for tv, cop and cat-mouse thriller so much so that I can barely remember anything about it.
The same applies for the sequel after the fantastic opening.
It almost hurts to see films begin with such promise when that promise fails to be fulfilled.
