Just your average mystery thriller. The ending twist is okay, but the conclusion is so badly cliche.

I'd say that this an OK movie. It's entertaining. It pokes your mind a little bit. But it just did not reach the peak that were meant for high-profile high suspense crime flicks. MORGAN FREEMAN was not maxed out of his acting skills, and ASHLEY JUDD was not pushed enough to the limit as well. This production was a piece of cake for these two high caliber celebrities. They simply rode on the power of their names. But still, won't waste your time if you go and see it.
