  1. great review Abbi!

  2. Thanks once again! 🙂

    1. Abbi

      You’re welcome! I wrote it in the middle of at terrible cold and now reading it back it’s full of mistakes. Eep!

      1. Do you want me to fix anything?? I don’t mind! I just never touch what others have written unless they ask me to… 🙂

        1. Abbi

          I might send you a revised version if you don’t mind. Nothing major just a few tweaks…

          1. No problem! I’m on my way out for a bit now but can update it later. 🙂

  3. Great review! That curb scene still makes me shudder. And I know it’s so wrong because his character is pure evil (at first, at least), but Edward Norton is so damn sexy in this movie. It’s very confusing.

    1. Abbi

      I think it’s a real testament to the impact of that scene that everyone remembers it. Charismatic people just are sexy… even if their motives and morals are questionable, I wouldn’t call him evil at any stage, just a product of his environment – that and ignorant!

      1. Well, yeah, you’re right. Still, pretty scary guy. Which is kinda hot. I’m confused again.

  4. I just want to say again, great review on a great film.. and now I have to find time to watch it again!

    1. Abbi

      Thank-you! It’s so worth a rewatch.

  5. I read this on Mutant’s site the other day. Great review Abbi!
