Some good ideas, just so-so result
10 November 2000 | by cfc_canSee all my reviews

Mark of Cain is a compact thriller that pretty much takes place on two sets. Despite this, it's a fairly well made thriller that makes the most of it's twin brother plot (one good, one bad) Wendy Crewson is an engaging heroine and the finale does deliver some thrills. It's all set appropriately enough against a wintry Canadian countryside. Not the best of it's kind but fairly well made.
