I loved this movie and have watched it at least 50 times. I'm still not clear about two things. One, when Cal found out that Annie knew So nja was getting paid the $26,000 per month Cal realized that Steven was the real guilty party. How did Annie know about this money? Two, who was the shooter going to kill at the end? I don't think he knew Cal would be at Steven's office. Does anyone out there have an answer for me. This is really bugging me. Thanks.
this movie was very cool!
well what can i say
