This movie was just nothing. It wasn't so bad that it was fun to make fun of but it wasn't good enough for me to actually recommend it to anybody. The acting was solid and it did a good job of building it's self up to the climax. But the issue was that by the time you get to the climax you just don't care. The main character just isn't likable and the rest of the cast just isn't worth caring about. If you get the chance to watch this movie for free then you might watch it but otherwise avoid it. please read a longer review of this and other movies at http://moviegrabbag.blogspot.com/

An engrossing thriller weighed down by incredible coincidences and a tacked-on ending. FInal Grade: B-

This film takes a little work to get through. It may be a little slow but the themes and lessons are worth your 101 minutes. It's capably written and directed. Both Guy Pearce (Memento, LA Confidential) and J.K. Simmons (Law & Order, Juno) deliver terrific performances. The themes are well executed, especially those of redemption and fate. These two writers have certainly not faltered in their career, having gone on to be nominated for an Oscar for their co-adaptation of Children of Men. Their next work comes out this Friday - Iron Man.
