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.

They simply rode on the power of their names. But still, won't waste your time if you go and see it.
