Smart and sometimes over the top thriller, with great actors like Jeff Bridges and Tim Robbins. It's a wise story. Jeff Bridges is like always fantastic and Tim Robbins is giving one of his best

The main problems with this hokey and overwrought mishap are the beyond ridiculous storyline which scoffs the whole idea of suspension of disbelief, the cringeworthy and repetitive script and the annoying, over the top acting by Bridges. But The main problems with this hokey and overwrought mishap are the beyond ridiculous storyline which scoffs the whole idea of suspension of disbelief, the cringeworthy and repetitive script and the annoying, over the top acting by Bridges. But even other 'minor' flaws in the editing, lighting and shaky camera-work are not in any way less responsible for this movie turning out to be the most campy thriller with a decent cast I've seen in quite some time. Although, 'The Contract' did come to mind... But the ending was by a nose the most insulting part of the whole ordeal. An ending not oh-well-It's-just-a-movie kind of stupid, not what-do-ya-mean-the-earth-isn't flat kinda buffoonic, but abysmally worse, you'd have to see it to believe it. But I really wish you didn't. A serious no-brainer which will only get worse as the playtime goes on. And despite the few positive reviews some mentally challanged persons (or production crew) placed on this website, a must miss for sure. Collapse

Very well written. You think the hero may actually save the day and they pull the rug right out from under you...Incredible twist.
