    Rosario Dawson is a ground-breaking producer and brilliant for taking on such a tough subject matter. The cinematography could have been better but after the production ended up having two directors of photography, this look of the film speaks volumes about why having a great crew can be so powerful in delivering a quality project. Dawson is a very intelligent actor and had a mediocre script to deal with in my opinion. I hope people go and see this film on DVD because one has to stay and watch the movie to the end to fully appreciate the true nature of the revenge in this film. I think this film will be a sleeper hit on DVD and those reviewers who walked out missed a very powerful film since the ending surely makes up for any lack of dialog as complained by by some of the other reviewers. Get the DVD and sit back and be shocked.

    Seriously...I haven't walked out of a movie in almost ten years but walked out of this one about an hour or so into it but easily could have walked out 45 minutes into it. Ridiculous dialogue, horrible editing and some of the absolute worst monlogues by an actress in the history of filmmaking. Rosario Dawson should be embarrassed...and she should mail me a check for the cost of my movie ticket. Honestly one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Avoid at all costs. Don't make me say I told you so.
