Review of "Mothman Prophecies, The"
I never was interested in this film at the cinema because I didn't really know what it was about but I rented it film last week from blockbuster and sat down to watch it thinking that it would just be one of them films that are ok but not brilliant but I was wrong.This film has a great story line that is apparently based on a true story but it has had a Hollywood makeover so don't take all of as reality but it does have some fantastic acting by veteran Richard Gere.
